Title

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN IN PUNJAB: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW

Authors

Abstract

Domestic violence is a universal problem and existing through ages. It is present in all cultures and societies and not confined to one region or community. Women across the world irrespective of age, class and socio-economic status face violence of all kinds. The purpose of the present investigation was to understand the nature, extent and type of domestic violence with special reference to women gender. From the rural areas of nine blocks of Amritsar district, all the ever-married women of 15-49 years undergoing some medical treatment (regular or irregular) for their violence prone physical injuries were taken. Purposive sampling method has been used. Data were collected through Interview schedule and Case studies. Physical and visible injuries women receive at the hands of husbands and other family members. Nearly sixty (59.92%) per cent respondents reported minor injuries like cuts, facial scars, bruises, minor burns, aches, and sprains to their feet, ankles, knees, wrists or elbows with injuries in ligaments in trying to escape from their perpetrators intentionally twisting and hurting them and less severe eye injuries. The major proportion of respondents (30.14 percent) who received major injuries consulted physicians for treatment. Some of them reported that they approached the doctor on emergency basis like fracture of bones, or strangulation. A small proportion of respondents (4.11 percent) with major injuries contacted other medical source like bone-setters (Malan vale) who massaged their injuries with some herbal oil. The respondents with minor injuries did not get an opportunity to see the doctor though even their minor injuries required one or two visits to a medical practitioner for proper treatment. 21.58 per cent of them took counsel from ASHA workers as they were the frequent visitors to their homes for taking details of their reproductive health status.
