Home violence refers to men and women who are eager to legitimize violence in their homes, they are supported by some cultures that still believe in the use of brutality to settle some home issues. This creates the law of the jungle in which the weak are always losers and the strong take it all. The most victims in household violence are those I called the weak; ie the females and the children who suffer what they do not deserve. This is due to some brutal men who want to control over their wives, not recognising they are wrongly acting. Their aim is to set their power over females and thus confirm their masculinity. If they were strong they should look for another man as strong as themselves and engage a fight but not fight someone unable to respond them physically. Some people do believ females are physically weak; even if this true but not always, they are strong somewhere men are weak. However there are other few males who do consider females as their real friends and do give them support. The question is, do we support or kill someone who is pyhsically weak? I think we have to help them where they cannot excel. And physical force is not all, there exist different forms of force; one can be physically weak and be strong in other domains, use their mental capacities. And for me, the latter are the people we need more as to build sustainable development for the community.
On the other hand, some females do deny the male's hounour and dignity although others do surrender for the sake of the so called harmony in their homes. A peaceful home should be the result of the couple's commitment because the dream of most females is to live homes without without troubles, without drinking partners because most of them become aggressive after having seeped on a glass of alcohol. These awful behaviours affect all the family members since their life interrelate. The actions of each member can easily affect all the others, negatively or positively. That is why alcohol is always pointed out as the major cause of home violence. The latter due to alcohol abuse is nonetheless far more common among males than females because most females are ready to listen to their husbands, which is the opposite for majirity of males.

Every November 25 the world celebrates the International Day for eliminating violence against women. This day has been instituted in 1999 by the UN General Assembly in order to sensitize the public opinion on violations of women’s rights.
Such an initiative is necessary since in most cultures, women are not considered as true human beings; they are treated just like inferior beings or citizens of second class. The prejudices they undergo are heavy, strong and unbearable. For this… Continue
