  • Product Description

This research work provides knowledge on domestic violence. It recognizes domestic violence as a social problem existent in societies and as a human rights concern necessitating redress. Its predominance can largely be explained from a cultural perspective that points out the way in which many cultures have beliefs, norms and social institutions that legitimize and therefore perpetuate violence against women (CHANGE, 1999). Using both primary and secondary data, it provides factual information on the different forms domestic violence is manifested and adopts two theories in examining the psycho-socio stigma and isolation tendencies felt by women who have endured violence. The research gives a clear understanding of; • The persistent nature of violence against women. • The kind of stigma suffered by women in abusive relationships. Particularly, stigma felt from within (individual stigma) and stigma emanating from society (societal stigma). • The circumstances leading to isolation while drawing a line between imposed isolation and self imposed isolation among women who have suffered abuse. • The role of social networks. Whether or not women find them supportive or unsupportive.
