What is Domestic violence?

Domestic violence is the intentional and persistent physical, emotional or sexual abuse of a woman and her children, in a way that causes pain, distress or injury and can lead to loss of life.

 

Any woman can experience domestic violence, regardless of her age, race, nationality, social class, sexuality, disability, marital status or religious belief.

 

Domestic violence is a crime.
