Violence against women is a major human rights issue all over the world. It also a health issue.
The most common form of violence against women is domestic violence. It is also known as intimate partner violence, spousal abuse. It can be largely defined as a form of abusive behavior by partners in a close relationship such as family, marriage, or friends, etc. It has many forms like physical aggression or threats, sexually, emotionally abuse dominating, etc.
The man may kick, hit, bite, slap, shove, or try to strangle the woman.
At times women are seriously injured and, in some cases, they are killed and also die as a result of injuries. Bangladesh seems to have no exception in this case. This occurrence is high in our country.
Newspaper reports clearly indicate that. The estimation data of this physical violence against women by husband in this country varies between 30-50%.
There is a lack of knowledge and awareness in the context of violence against women in Bangladesh and other countries as well. As a documentary photographer, I want to build a strong awareness in this context with my images and believe that the problem will be resolved soon.
