Domestic Violence


Since the late 1970s, attention paid to domestic violence has increased exponentially. It is now one of the types of victimization garnering the most policy and research attention. Initially, domestic violence was defined narrowly as physical violence perpetrated by husbands against their wives. This definition has evolved in the last 30 years as people have come to realize that violence exists in all kinds of romantic relationships (Weisz et al. 2000). In the past few years, there has been a major increase in the health and social issues resulting from different forms of domestic violence against teenage women, including beatings, and rape.

Women have been seen as a victim of those people they do not know; however, the majority of this violence is perpetrated by intimate partners of women that are their boyfriends and husbands, and members of the family such as fathers or stepfathers (Weisz et al. 2000). Violence is generally used as a means to ensure the domination of one person over another. Quite often the sources of violence are male representatives. Simultaneously, one of the main causes of male violence is gender inequality (Saunders 2002).

Saunders' (2008) research has shown that in societies where men are allowed not to hide fear, tears, weakness, the level of violence is low; while where in societies with masculine bravado and panache force, and deterrence and the rejection of fear is a norm, violence is more likely to bloom (Saunders 2008).

Background and Literature Review

Yearly psychological estimates of domestic violence are taken from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), an annual national survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. In 2008, the NCVS estimated that there were 593,100 incidents (69,100 against men and 504,980 against women) of violent victimization by an intimate partner in the United States, which translates to an annual incidence rate of less than 1 victimization per 1,000 men age 12 and older and 4 victimizations per 1,000 women age 12 and older. The National Violence Against Women Survey (NVAWS) was a one-time national survey focused on physical violence, sexual assault, stalking, and threats of violence (Saunders ...
