Domestic violence is a problem that often remains unseen, hidden behind the walls of the family home. Yet it occurs in all segments of society—in all economic, ethnic, cultural, and religious groups. Its psychological and sociological complexities make it hard to face and even harder to understand.
Domestic violence is a problem that often remains unseen, hidden behind the walls of the family home. Worldwide, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused during her lifetime. In 2001, more than half a million American women were victims of nonfatal domestic violence. The psychological and sociological complexities of domestic violence make it hard to face and even harder to understand, yet it occurs in all segments of society—in all economic, ethnic, cultural, and religious groups.About the Author:
