The thesis starts of with the introduction of domestic violence against women and girls. The scope of the problem is defined illustrating that women can face domestic violence in many forms throughout their lives. The section on magnitude of the problem discusses physical abuse, sexual abuse and rape, psychological and emotional abuse, femicide, sexual abuse of children and adolescents, forced prostitution etc.

The thesis then in details explains the causes of domestic violence; its consequences such as denial of rights, impact on health, impact on children, critical issue of child survival. The paper also mentions the obligations of the state towards dealing with this issue. The entire discussion leads us to the results of designing strategies and interventions in order to combat domestic violence against women and girls and reduce their overall impact as well. Domestic Violence Against Women And Girls: Strategies And Interventions To Combat Domestic Violence1. INTRODUCTIONThe United Nations Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women (1993) defines domestic violence as “any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life. ” (General Assembly Resolution, 1993)PURPOSE OF THE THESIS: The reason why I want to conduct this study is because in the past years there was this general concept that domestic violence is on the rise only in the third world nations but now when we consider the magnitude of this problem we come to realize that this is becoming an epidemic for almost every nation now for example, according to a survey conducted in United States, 28% of women reported at least one episode of physical violence from their partner.

Similarly in Japan, 59% of 796 women surveyed in 1993 reported being physically abused by their partner. So through this paper I intend to highlight some major areas regarding this issue and devise strategies and interventions that will help to combat this epidemic.
