It also should be noted that this type of violence can affect anyone regardless of economic status, religion, culture, and sexuality (Gender-based Violence: Introduction, 2017). For instance, gender-based violence can occur within an abusive relationship. Domestic violence is used to control the other partner within the relationship. One partner can exert power by imposing fear by threatening to hurt the other partner or possible children, continuous insults, acts possessive towards the partner, as well as sexual pressures.

Generally people who engage in self harm are coping with their own life issues, anxiety, bipolar, or depression. Whether they are having some of these mental health issues, or it is just a way to deal with their own problems they know it is wrong to harm themselves.

They believe that this exploitation and oppression can be evidenced in various ways including in the more extreme circumstances the act of domestic violence. They are of the belief that males think that since they are head of the household they are allowed to control their family in a very authoritative or dictatorial like manner. This thinking in turn can lead to domestic violence which may include not only physical abuse but also emotional and psychological abuse as well as financial mistreatment.
