India is a nation renowned for the variety of its heritage, customs, and morals. Domestic violence against women is one of India's severe social issues, though. Abuse that takes place in the home, including physical, emotional, psychological, and sexual abuse, is referred to as domestic violence. Regardless of their socio-economic status, it is an ubiquitous multifaceted communal problem that affects many women in India. Despite the fact that domestic abuse is exceptionally common, Indian culture persists to mostly overlook and disregard the problem. Women are more susceptible to exploitation and abuse because of cultural norms and attitudes that place men in a superior position. Women are frequently expected to endure abuse and violence in isolation rather than seeking help or speaking out against it because men are often viewed as the figurehead of the home. In addition, it can be troublesome for women to come out because of the social taboo and remorse associated to being a victim of domestic violence. Despite laws and practices safeguarding women from domestic violence , many victims are oblivious of their rights or hesitant to seek assistance out of concern for retaliation from their abusers or society at large. In India, the court system is moreover routinely retarded and onerous, making it exceedingly hard for women to get justice. This piece of writing examines the tension between domestic abuse and the right to life. Repercussions to society are also being reviewed. The author also talks on the fact that is domestic violence solely impacts women? Last but not least, the study has a sound conclusion and sensible ideas. This writing aims to support ongoing initiatives to advance social justice and gender equality.
