dc.descriptionViolence against women has continued to be the most widespread and socially tolerated human right infringement. This Gender based violence stems from structural inequalities between men and women. 1 In the 1993 UN Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women, it was set out that an act of violence results from physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life.en_US
dc.description.abstractThere are various forms of domestic violence; Physical abuse, Emotional abuse, Economic abuse and Psychological abuse. One which is common but unspoken of is Economic abuse. It is identified when a husband asks the wife to quit her work and become a housewife to take care of the family and the children while he becomes the breadwinner or vice versa. In the incidence of the spouse refusing to quit, he or she is forced into it thus equating to economic abuse as a form of domestic violence.en_US
