Abstract

Domestic violence is a global problem that reaches socioeconomic, cultural, racial and
class distinctions across national borders. This problem is not only widely dispersed
geographically, but it also has an extensive incidence which makes it a typical and accepted
behavior. Domestic abuse us common, profoundly rooted and has significant implications for the
health and wellbeing of women. Its existence remains morally indefensible. The cost to people,
health care systems and society is high. The goal of this study is to report the prevalence of
different types of domestic violence against women, to examine data on domestic violence
against women in India and some suggestive interventions. Managing domestic abuse incudes
basically a joint effort of law enforcement, social security, and health services. Although efforts
have been made in this direction, the cases attended represent only the tip of the iceberg, as most
cases are not reported due to family member social pressures or defamatory social stigma. Real
change these cases can only be bought about by changing the mindset of society through
education and better law enforcement.
