Abstract
A woman who has served as the backbone of her family and society as a whole, gives birth to new life and nurtures it, transmits culture and traditions from generation to generation, who is crucial to the family’s long-term development and quality of life, is subjected to severe oppression in society. Regardless of her age, caste, religion, or social position, she is a victim of some sort of violence. In India, women are frequently and persistently the victims of domestic violence due to the patriarchal society in which they live and the unspoken traumas they endure. A problem that affects nearly every home in India is that women are subjected to some form of violence, whether physical, mental, verbal, emotional, or economic. Despite the fact that men and women have equal human rights, women are overwhelmingly outnumbered by men in society. Women have certain protections against abuse, but they still face many obstacles to achieving their social rights and living a dignified life. The paper deals with a critical study of domestic violence against women in India including its prevalence, applicability, critical evaluation and recommendations along with the juxtaposition of facts and data available.
