Authors(2) :-S. Pavithra, S. Irudhaya Ananthi

It is in fact a major constraint to development in many parts of the world. However, it seems that the causes, consequences and management strategies used in different places vary. In effect, there is need to study this vice in other parts of the country. This study was therefore carried out in Central Division of Theni District and its purpose was to analyse the causes based domestic violence for women. More so, the study attempted to find out if there are management strategies used to address the problem. Frequencies and percentages were used to analyse the causes, consequences, and management strategies addressing gender based domestic violence. Further, the t-test was used to examine if there was a statistically significant difference between the rate of violence among women. Mental stress, reduced family income and poor family health were some of the mentioned consequences of gender violence. There was a significant relationship between the rate of violence and the level of education, the level of income and the rate of alcohol consumption. The study findings also showed a statistically insignificant difference in the rate of violence for married women. Therefore, it was recommended that there is need for education on harmonious family living, provision of guidance and counselling services to the affected population, and formulation of policies that lead to legal procedures in settling of family disputes.
