CHAPTER- 1 INTRODUCTION
1.1 Title
How domestic violence has an impact on Asian women
1.2 Introduction
Domestic violence is increasing in all parts of world not only within the families of
backward areas but rather witnessed in Western countries as well. Domestic violence or domestic
abuse is that part of violence of any sort of abuse which is done by one person of family against
another like that of marriage or cohabitation. The history of this domestic violence from around
the world is very old as there was no legal system which was related to wife being beaten up by
her in-laws or husband. Apart from this there were also many significant changes within the rules
and regulations of countries across world which is marking or setting up examples for gender
equality. These change was witnessed after the Feminist movement in 19thcentury in USA, UK
and other parts of world which was regarding this domestic violence.
Domestic violence is not just physical but also mental abuse and torture which person is
facing when they are committed within any type of relationships and this also take place in
heterosexual or same sex relationships. So there are many cases of domestic violence would
include violence or threating against, parents, spouse, children and elderly person of family.
There are number of forms of domestic violence which could take place like that of reproductive,
verbal, physical, emotional, religious, sexual abuse and economic. These could lead to many
range of different forms like marital rape, acid throwing, female genital mutilation, choking and
beating that ultimately lead to death or disfigurement. The major victims of this domestic
violence from across the world are women as they are considered to as economically and
physically weak.
1.3 Background of topic
Domestic violence or abuse within the Asian women is highly witnessed than any other
part of world. As many of the research show that there is significant direct relationship between
rates of domestic violence and level of gender equality in country. As the country which is
having less rate of gender equality will be having higher level of domestic violence statistics. As
many Asian countries like that of China, Bangladesh, India, Turkey, Israel, Iraq, Jordan, Pakistan
and many more. It was noted in one of the report that about 21-55% of women Asian are victim
of physical or sexual violence during the course of their life and about 18% of them are
1
experiencing rape or case of stalking by their intimate partners as well. So this particular report
will be largely covering the number of victims with impact of domestic violence within countries
of Asia.
1.4 Rationale
This is very much important to include or research on this topic as this would be giving
clear idea related to domestic violence and why it is so much prominent or commonly done on
women of Asia. There are increasing crime rates against women and children in these countries
which is very common in respect to domestic violence. There are many countries especially with
Islamic law which are to very greater extend giving permission to husband or male member of
family for the violence against women or their wives. For example in Iraq husbands are having
their legal rights as to punish their wives as they are not aware of what is been done with them is
wrong or right. As majority of women think that domestic violence as the judgement from God
to them and blaming themselves for the existing violence. Other than this most of the women
also are having no knowledge about the existing law and policies which are specially meant to
protect their legal right.
