Domestic Violence

 

Domestic violence is  a serious cause of concern amongst the Indian population. Patriarchy and hierarchy have been a central component to  the Indian society. Traditional views on gender roles and inequalities still exist. What’s worse is that these injustices are tolerated by our society. There is a misconception that domestic violence is only physical abuse, however, it includes psychological, sexual, financial, or emotional.
