Intimate Partner Violence against Women: Perceptions across Gender in Aizawl City
Catherine Lianhmingthangi | Grace Lalhlupuii Sailo
Abstract: Violence against women is serious and pernicious. It ruins lives, breaks up families and has a lasting impact. Target 5.2 of the Sustainable Development Goals seeks to eliminate all forms of violence against women in public and private spheres. Violence within the family can have significant consequences for other family members who are not directly victimized. IPV has been associated with long lasting, intense, and negative emotional and behavioral influences on children who witness domestic violence. Intimate Partner Violence includes psychological, physical or sexual harm by a current or former partner or spouse. The fact that women are often emotionally involved with and economically dependent on those who victimize them has major implications for both the dynamics of abuse and the approaches to dealing with it. Intimate Partner Violence is perpetuated by factors which are cultural, political, economic and legal in nature. Because the problem of IPV is complex, it is important for all community sectors to be involved and work together. Therefore, this paper throws light on the findings of Focus Group Discussions conducted across gender in Aizawl city with regard to their perceptions on intimate partner violence against women.
