Violence against women, widely recognized as a serious human rights violation, is endemic in communities and countries around the world, cutting across class, race, age, religions and national boundaries affecting millions of women worldwide. The book tries to highlight the relationship of socio-economic and demographic factors in causation of marital violence. Violence against women affects physical, social, economic, psychological, spiritual and emotional well being of the victim, the perpetrator and the society as a whole. Lack of knowledge and insensitivity among health care professionals and unwillingness of victims to come forward makes addressing this problem a challenging task. Hence there is no time for complacency and an urgent need for multisectoral coordination for its quick redressal. All the students and teachers associated with medical, social sciences, NGOs, legal etc. field with find this book quite helpful.
