Abstract

This chapter looks at the dynamics, manifestations and effects of violence against women in the home from the victim's point of view, and then studies the ways in which cultural attitudes towards domestic violence combine with the legal and criminal response to trivialize the problem. This failure to address the problem leads to the further transmission of domestic violence through the generational cycle.

Keywords: women, violence
