Abstract

This study is an exploratory research. The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the implementation and effectiveness of domestic violence on married women in our society. Domestic violence is increasing day by day in Pakistani society. No day passes without the mass media reporting serious violence offences within families and households. This research was conducted to know that what are the causes and environments which create domestic violence among married women with special reference to North Nazimabad (Arafat town). It is a fact that majority of the women could hardly read or write a sentence due to this situation they cannot protect themselves from domestic violence and cannot fight for their rights legally. Majority of women living in joint family system are also facing domestic violence, so the reasons behind this can be poverty, depressing environment, societal pressures, imbalance of power between men and women, male dominancy and female ignorance about their rights in which the child is brought up. . The Abusive and violent patterns leave a lasting impression on the child behavior. In Pakistan majority of women consider the behaviors and actions of men in societies as inherited normal actions which really make them more vulnerable to any type of abuse in their home.
