DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: THE GAP BETWEEN STATISTICS AND REALITY
Domestic violence, also known as intimate partner violence, continues to be a major problem in the world, having a negative impact on victims physical and emotional health. Even though many people view their homes as secure havens, it is upsetting to realise that domestic violence frequently begins within those same walls. The huge discrepancy between reported data and the real occurrence of domestic abuse in India is highlighted by this paper. Due to underreporting, which is fuelled by cultural pressures and the ineffectiveness of the legal system, the statistics fail to accurately reflect the full scope of this epidemic. Victims endure silent suffering while lacking assistance and justice. This blog emphasises the essential need for greater awareness, extensive support networks, and practical legal measures to combat domestic violence and offer comfort to its victims by delving into the dismal reality hidden behind statistics. Only then do we have a chance of ending the cycle of abuse and creating a more secure workplace for everyone.
