Gender stereotype has begun to dominate the scenario in almost all aspects of life. Some attribute this to the feminist movement of the 1980s and some to the status that the law has given to women. Whatever the case, it has affected people at the domestic level as well. The right to go against tradition and the right to freedom to fight back has become a tug of war between the sexes. Today almost 40% of domestic violence are by women. Most believe this is the result of the abuser's belief that he/she has control over the other person's life and activities. Researchers believe that domestic violence is the result of emotional turmoil, the inability to accept facts different as they were.
