Research Proposal on Impact of Domestic Violence on Children as Adulthood
Domestic violence is an epidemic with far-reaching consequences for victims, their
families, or even the society at large. It is one of the most prevalent forms of human rights
violations because it denies the victim his/her dignity, respect, self-worth, equality, security, and
rights to enjoy fundamental freedom. It is present globally, and no country can claim to be free
of this act of inhumanity. It cuts across culture, race, social class, ethnicity, and age. Domestic
violence, in most cases, is violence perpetrated by men against women with an insignificant
percentage of women against men. Even though there are no reliable statistics on domestic
violence, a research study carried out by World Health Organization demonstrated that 20 to 50
percent of women living in the US had experienced at least one form of domestic violence
(García-Moreno et al., 2005).
Society is often equated as a safe haven-a place where people live together, share love,
and offer protection to another. However, studies have demonstrated that it is also one of the
places the breeds the worst act of violence against women and children. The societal norms and
stereotypes on gender have portrayed women to be weak, vulnerable, submissive, and in a
position to be exploited, while men are seen as strong, authoritative, dominating, and in a
position to exploit women. Such kinds of norms have set the precedence for men to justify their
acts of abuse towards women and children. However-much the society may try to justify
domestic violence against women, committing the act of violence is ultimately a range of choices
that individuals make depending on various variables, such as delinquent peer associations,
absent or rejecting father, or observing violence between one's parents while growing up.
Furthermore, inequality and lack of women empowerment have also significantly
contributed to domestic violence against women and children. Women face much inequality that



denies them the opportunity to pursue education, gain meaningful employment, income, and
independence. Even when women manage to gain employment, they still earn less than their
male counterparts due to inequality in the work environment. According to García-Moreno et al.
(2005), women still earn 80% of what their male counterparts do. That is, a male salesperson
who works for company X earns $100,000, but a female salesperson who works for the same
company earns $80,000. As a result, they are forced to ful...
