Domestic violence is not only a problem in developing or underdeveloped countries. It is also very common in developed countries. Domestic violence is a reflection of our pseudo-civilized society. Violence has no place in the civilized world. But the number of cases reported each year is a matter of great concern. the full picture of how; most cases are not recorded or go unnoticed in everyday life. This is a very dangerous trend that is creeping into our society and must be countered with an iron fist.
Women and children are often easy targets. The situation in societies is really bad. Numerous deaths occur every day as a result of domestic violence alone. Society is one of the factors causing the problem. Dowry is one of the main causes of violence against newly married brides. Physical assaults on women, appalling remarks, and denial of basic human rights are common in many parts of the country. Children are also the target of this inhuman behavior.

appears jealous or possessive or constantly accuses you of being unfaithful
gets angry when he drinks alcohol or uses drugs
tries to control if he can see a provider caring
Threatens you with violence or a weapon

It is time to raise awareness that violence cannot be accepted at any cost. It’s time to teach our children that violence is not the answer to conflict, and teach our daughters never to expect violence. It’s time for victims of violence to stop justifying domestic violence at the hands of their partner and to understand that it’s not your (the victim’s) fault. for help from friends, hotlines, and professional experts.
