Abstract:Gender and violence is a moot and miscellaneous arena which has been proliferated so tremendously and rapidly in recent years. The explosive growth of this field means that each successive decade gets harder to sum up. The scrutiny of violence against women has been a burning issue with regard to the conflicting attempts to define it. In the intended research, we aim at tackling the relationship between violence and gender identities, and to unearth mainly the hidden causes of it. Interestingly, we should note that the violence, we intend to investigate with relation to gender, includes sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, psychological violence (intimidation and verbal aggressiveness), and forced marriage as well.
