Violence against women is a worldwide, yet still hidden problem. Freedom from the threat of harassment, battering, and sexual assault is a concept that most of us have a hard time imagining because violence is such a deep part of our cultures and our lives. Violence against women is woven into the fabric of society to such an extent that many of us who are victimized feel that we are at fault. But near me violence against women means or an opposite word is women. Till day women are dominated by the society, in the working place, or in the house by their family members. Every form of violence threatens the women and limits their ability to make choices regarding their lives. Sexual violence is particularly insidious because sexual acts are ordinarily and rightly a source of pleasure and communication. It is often unclear to a woman who has been victimized and to society as a whole whether a sexual violation was done out of sexual desire or violent intent. Thirty years ago, violence against women is hidden under a cloak of silence or acceptance. As more and more women talked with each other in the recent wave of the women's movement, it becomes apparent that violence against women’s occurs on a massive scale, that no woman is immune, and that family, friends, and public institutions have been cruelly insensitive about it. But over the past thirty years, women have mobilized to offer direct services to those who have encountered violence, to educate people about the range and nature of male violence against women, and to develop strategies for change. In accordance to some studies in Pakistan every hour two wives are beaten up. But now a days so many NGOs working for the development of women’s in developing country like Pakistan. For instance a case of Zahida Parveen


Zahida Perveen's husband accused her of being unfaithful and cut off her nose and ears and gouged out her eyes. The centre helped her go abroad for treatment and to prosecute her husband, who is now serving a 14-year prison sentence. Zahida, who is now blind, appreciated the support, but tells Nahida (social worker) that she feels the sentence was far too lenient. But she says That I've gone through so many problems, so this is not enough for him.


On the other side, some political parties in Pakistan also stand against the violence on women, required to protect women and children from domestic violence. A place which is considered as the heaven for women actually became hell for her. Most of the cases of abuse go unnoticed or unreported just because of the people around discourage the victim and stops her to go to the police as it is matter of her marital life. Another major reason of domestic violence is the male dominating society and the attitude of males towards their female family member. If we want to eliminate all these problems we had to empower our women. In today’s world most important point is that family should also educate their male members to respect women and should treat them as a human being as they taught their daughter how to behave. From the religious point of view Christ has set us free from his holy blood, and all human creatures are born free, so no one is in the world who are born slave, so why the society is dominating women’s.
