Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence



In the daily news cycle, there is a grim routine: femicide. In the fi rst half of 2014 alone, there were around 70 femicides reported in the media. The vast majority of these women were killed by their spouses, while some were murdered by their fathers, brothers, or even their own children. Among the reasons, mental breakdowns and notions of honor stand out. Government institutions, local administrations, and civil society organizations are working on a wide range of initiatives to combat violence against women and children, from enacting new laws to increasing the number of women’s shelters. But are these efforts suffi cient? According to the news, it seems not. Professor Dr. Aliye Mavili, who is involved in many national projects aimed at protecting and supporting children and families, delves deeply into the factors that lead to women remaining in violent environments in this book. She also provides crucial recommendations for social workers who provide counseling services to women in this field.
