Domestic Violence

In the discussion about domestic violence we Iranians are behind or it is easier to say that we have never really dealt with this heavy topic.  As much as women rights are a political concern causing fears for men in control, yet women’s rights in relationship is backed up with a complex load of multiple factors.  First of all because of years of oppression our women have internalized the sexism, the discrimination, and the biased laws against their being-in-the-world.  Mainly domestic violence among our Iranian families are hidden and kept in darkness of family matters.  Secondly relationships between man and woman or between partners have no health and human definition in our culture.  Finally we have lost the difference between right and wrong. What can be done? Education and Education, this is our only and last hope.
