1.1      Background of the Study

Domestic violence has been a part of human history, and human civilizations have tolerated it without feeling guilty (Godwin, 2005). Violence against women is a consequence of historically uneven power relations between men and women, which have resulted in males exercising dominance over and discriminating against women, so preventing women from achieving complete equality. Violence against women is a worldwide scourge that continues to murder, torment, and maim women on a physical, psychological, sexual, and emotional level. It is one of the most common violations of human rights, depriving women of their security, equality, dignity, self-worth, and right to basic freedom. Violence against women occurs in the majority of the world’s nations, regardless of culture, class, education, money, ethnic origin, or age (UN declaration on the elimination of violence Against Women and General Assembly Resolution, 1993).

Domestic violence, according to the Women Aid Collective (WACOL 2004), may be defined as any action taken against another person that is capable of depriving the individual of a fundamental human right.  (Women Aid Collective 2004) added that domestic violence is a form of bullying whereby a person is dealt with physically, thus resulting to injury on the victim just because the perpetrator does not know of any other way to handle the situation.

Kantor in Yogo (2008), stated that domestic violence is a pressing global issue which is often associated with women’s isolation from supportive kin ties. It is an essential component of gender-based violence which has been defined as those actions and activities that cause physical, psychological and emotional harm to a person just because of mere misunderstanding, (Ityavyar in Okeph, 2005). As a phenomenon, however, violence against women relates to a broad spectrum of issues affecting the existence of the female specie in relation to the family. The female folks suffer in their matrimonial homes because God Almighty constituted marriage in the Garden of Eden, made women help mate and consequently our social system places women in a disadvantaged position (Okpeh, 1999).
