The Violence Syndromic countries: The domestic violence mainly prevails in countries like Yugoslavia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, and China. The prevailing situation is severe and intractable.
Reasons: The brutality against women in different societies and some of the methods of society. The battered women have almost become an institution so vehement and ubiquitous is the problem which in most cases goes unreported and unresolved due to matrimonial ties involving subtle deterrents like withdrawal of financial support, shame, and propaganda.
Circumstances faced by the battered women: The battered women have to face the circumstances like separation, surveillance, exhaustion and hunger, hostility and paranoia, chemical dependence, financial deprivation, discredit, insecurity, further battering, the cycle of violence, sexual abuses, guilt, and denial.

Reasons behind domestic violence: There are a few reasons behind this violence syndrome. Man is by nature sex-oriented, self-centered, greed, malicious and rapacious as well. Some people are not satisfied with a single wife. They want to fornicate or, cohabit with more than one woman or girl at a time. They find interest when they find a chance of enjoying opposite sex physically. Dowry system and barbarous character lead them to commit violence domestically.
Nature of violence syndrome: Violence syndrome or domestic violence does not belong to the same category or nature. It differs from man to man, taste to taste, country to country on geographical situations and climatic conditions. Rape is a common outrage against women and young girls and even babies committed by fathers. In South Africa, one woman has raped every 90 seconds and six women in the USA every six minutes. Sexual harassment is another favorite abuse.
In the workplace, bosses demand sexual favors in exchange for career advancement or job security. In Asian countries like India and Bangladesh, women fall victims to homicide and infanticide because of poverty which forces families to indulge in selective nourishment in favor of the boys who are used to work in the fields by virtue of superior strength. In India, boys are preferred to girls and women are made ashamed to bear girls.
Dangers of violence: Domestic violence is not at all danger-free. Excessive sexual abuse brings about a heavy loss of character, finance, and social status. It also creates health problems, traumas, infections, and uterine retention.
Solutions to domestic violence: Domestic violence is a worldwide problem. Its solution or eradication is a crying need. To prevent domestic violence the following suggestions can be accepted. Since man is a rational and considerate being, awareness of its danger should be created among men of all nations. Everyone should keep himself aloof from inhuman, unsocial, irreligious works.

Conclusion: Domestic violence is a crime. It destroys peace and harmony. It should not be allowed to cut across all racial, cultural, economic, political and religious spectrums.
