Domestic Violence . Does it has any end to it?

Hello Everyone! As we know domestic violence includes physical, sexual and psychological abuse face by the women which is done by their family members or by their partners. Sadly, many women are yet facing this kind of domestic violence everyday not only in one country but everywhere. Isn't it strange in this modern world, where many women are getting opportunity in most of the fields related to education and employment but can't ignore the fact that many women still out there are also deprive of getting opportunities mainly because of the patriarchal society. But can we say those women who are being independent aren't facing any kind of domestic violence, in real manner not at all. Everyday we read and listen about domestic violence towards women, where some women were there who raise their voice instead of keep silent but in maximum number many women prefer to remain silent. Now the question arises 'why' they prefer to remain silent, it's a very complex thing to answer as everyone has different aspect for this. But why always women need to suffer in every aspect? Is there any solution to this? Again that's an complex question to answer right now, no matter how much we try to curb this issue for sure somewhere in the corner again 90% of the women will go through to this issue. 

Now if we see the current status, due to corona everyone is staying at home in order to protect themselves from this virus but sadly there has been widespread reporting on the issue of the rise of domestic violence. The stay at home strategy to keep people safe, didn't turn out all too well for all of the population as can be seen with the reports. WHO officials say there is a 60% increase in emergency calls by victims of domestic abuse received in Europe and eventually in some countries the violence has even led to death.

'Death' such a common word right? There are many countries where a 'death' of a women doesn't give much importance, for them it's just a everyday word. Even the society can see the domestic violence but those people will prefer to comment and say that 'those are their personal problem let them solve by itself' but the same society will put questions to women whenever a women is drinking, smoking or wearing shorts, such a hypocrites right?

Eventually, if we really want to end this violence from the society then for sure we can't change the mental state of males but at least we can change the mindset of the women, as many women always remain silent and never come forward to share their sorrows and pain may be mostly because those women has the insecurities regarding ' what so-called society would say' and this kind of mindset need to stop, or else this kind of violence can't be solved and those culprits will never get the required punishment and most importantly if we don't take stand today then for sure our daughter would face the same kind of insecurities. So let's take the initiative to eradicate this domestic violence issue for lifetime.

Hello Karen Quinones-Axalan, I'm doing fine thank you. How about you? I've seen the male ones where they use 'us' as a weapon to vomit all their frustration and thinks that they are ruling the world and their concept needs to be stop for lifetime.

Dear Parinita,
The same question I am asking right now! The rate of domestic violence now is alarming. In fact this last month to date, I am becoming so tired and fagged out for taking domestic violence to family court. I took 12 cases there only this week. Thank you so much for raising your voice on this! Please continue to keep safe and your family
Love
Busayo

Hello Dear Parinita, Yes, I totally agree with you. Changing the mindset of the women is very important because the more the women learns to speak out the better and end of domestic violence. My take on DV is that we have to educate women on the need to speak out, raise voices so the perpetrators will be punished and also get Justice for the victims. Thanks for sharing.
Stay bless

Dear Parinita,
It is so encouraging to read your story, and know that you have such a strong and clear voice challenging this violence against women. So true that many cannot find their voices or are too afraid of repercussions to speak out. We are here to make sure we create this change. Keep letting your voice ring out, sister!
