What is domestic violence?

A symposium on women and abuse at home

Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior, displayed by a person living in a domestic setup, where they physically and mentally harm (or threaten to harm) a person within the household. It is one of the most common forms of violence experienced by women, across the world.
