Not only in developing countries, it is highly reported in many developed countries as well accroding to studies conducted by WHO,UNIFEM or many other agencies working among women. Many social and economic factors are driving the incidence of violence, however preventive measures are far less than the burden. Community based studies addressing the violence are little. Information on factors those contribute towrads incidence and factors those can control violence is further less. What social protective measure can adress this burden is a big question. This literature review based work & extract of an academic thesis has tried to answer many of these questions. This book therefore will help academic forums,institutions,social activists and policy makers to take appropriate decisions.
