Abstract

In this article we seek to explore some of the ways in which Courts have viewed domestic violence and marital murder through a masculocentric lens, thus misunderstanding and marginalising the experiences of battered women. We will also examine the ways in which the male domination of law and the legal system has affected attempts to address these concerns.

Keywords: battered women, trial
