Violence is described by the World Health Organization as the deliberate use of brute force or power, which can be a threat of harm or the actual use of force or power, against oneself, another individual, or against multiple people or a community which may result in an injury or a high possibility of injury, psychological harm, death, deprivation, or under development (World Health Organization, 2002). Violence against women and children is a severe problem in our society. Violence concerns all groups of people, but women and children are most susceptible to victimization because they usually retain fewer rights or lack suitable means of protection. There are some societies where specific types of violence are seen as socially and legally acceptable, thereby advancing the risk to children and women (Institute of Medicine, 2011).
Research has been conducted and has shown how violence has increased over the past decade. Victims of violence of any type of fear, stigmatization, or disapproval from society and will often delay reporting crimes. The problem is worsened by the fact that women and children are often victimized by people they know and because some countries lack laws or regulations protecting victims (Institute of Medicine, 2011). Some of the data that has been gathered indicate that rates of violence against women range from 15 to 71 percent in some countries and rates of violence against children to 80 percent.
