According to the UN, violence against women is any act of violence rooted in gender inequality, which results in, or is intended to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm to the woman suffering, including threats of such acts, coercion or imprisonment of any kind, whether in public or private life.
(UN Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women 1993, Art. 1.)
A guide intended for men can not only benefit their orientation in their own marital or partnership relationship, but can also contribute to the elimination of violence against women by obtaining new information on this serious but also sensitive topic.
The issue of domestic violence is a very complex and sensitive subject. If a woman living in a violent relationship falls into a circle of violence, she already needs help from outside. However, in order to effectively help women living in violent relationships, victims of domestic violence and eliminate this undesirable social phenomenon, it is first necessary to bring violence against women to people's attention as a serious, whole-of-society problem. It is necessary to know what gender equality, gender-based violence and violence against women are.
