Violence and Women's Economic Development
The link between violence and women's economic development is a cause of concern. Both due to the fact of violence inhibiting women's ability for decision-making, but also that when women are given a chance to increase their income, domestic violence often increases. We have seen in studies from different countries how violence against women increases dramatically after they get jobs and are able to increase their household income, and the violence gets worse the more women earn.
What socio-cultural factors affect and increase the likelihood of violence against women, and what are some remedies?
