Abstract

A COMPARITIVE STUDY TO ASSESS KNOWLEDGE OF FEMALES REGARDING DOMESTIC VIOLNCE IN SELECTED RURAL AND URBAN AREAS OF AMBALA, HARYANA.

S. Manpreet and K. Gurvinder*

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Violence against women is a global public health problem occurring in multitude of contexts and domestic violence is considered to be the most pervasive one. Poor enforcement of policies, limitation of researches and expertise in this field largely accounts for persistence of this problem and nature of domestic violence and its associated factor are poorly understood.[1] There is a paucity of evidence on effective strategies to reduce intimate partner violence (IPV) against women in conflict-affected settings. In such contexts, the prevention of gender-based violence (GBV) has not been a policy priority, and the few research and programmatic efforts pertaining to GBV have primarily focused on sexual violence perpetrated by armed groups (i.e. rape as a weapon of war) without adequate attention to violence by intimate partners. However, recent research suggests that IPV may be of greater prevalence than war-related violence victimization.[2] Objective: To assess and compare the knowledge of females regarding domestic violence in selected rural and urban areas. Methods: Total sample of the study was 200, (100 from rural area, Dhakola and 100 from urban area, Ambala, Haryana. Structured knowledge questionnaire was used to assess the knowledge of females regarding domestic violence. Results: The data reveals that the females residing in urban area had good knowledge i.e. 61% and the females residing in rural area had also good knowledge i.e.46% regarding domestic violence. The result of study shows that t value was 0.05 level of significance. The computed t value t (tab)=1.96, indicates that there was significant difference between the knowledge score of females residing in rural and urban area regarding domestic violence. Conclusion: The level of knowledge of females residing in urban area is higher as compared to those of females residing in rural community.
