Have you ever faced any sort of violence? Well, a lot of women face different types of violence. But what is it and why?
Global estimates published by WHO indicate that about 1 in 3 (35%) women worldwide have experienced physical violence which also includes sexual violence by their life partners as well as strangers.
Violence against women by their life partners is the worst case. Global estimates published by WHO indicate that as many as 38% murders of women are committed by men, that’s because men think it’s okay to do whatever they want to women because they’re married so they take their stress out on their wives.
One of the factor is low education and uneducated people abuse children.
Another factor is that girls see violence in family.
Harmful use of alcohol is also one of the reason people get violent.
Then there are cultural set ups where gender inequality and violence against women is accepted.
Unfortunately these things can negatively affect women’s physical and mental health and many of them get physically sick very early. Some develop HIV AIDS.
In my opinion, there should be more education for both genders whether at home or at school.
Girls should be able to earn money for themselves because being dependent on men for everything they need can also make men violent.
