In the last few years, World Health Organization (WHO) has made statements about the public health importance of violence against women. These statements result from a growing recognition that violence represents a serious violation of women’s human rights, is an important cause of injury, and also risk factor for many physical and psychological health problems. Violence against women (VAW) defied as: “any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women”. Since women are more focused than men (95% versus 5%), gender based violence is frequently used interchangeably with violence against women. Worldwide, an estimated one in three women are physically or sexually abused; and one in five experienced rape or attempted rape in their lifetime. Moreover, the most common and universal occurring form of VAW is that perpetrated by intimate partner. Intimate partner violence against women is arguably the most pervasive yet under estimated social and health problem that occur in pandemic proportion. The prevalence is comparable to those for cancer, cardiovascular disease, HIV/AIDS, malaria, and traffic accident in the world.
