Domestic violence is a serious problem around the world. Many people view domestic violence as exclusively part of certain ethnic or racial communities, or as unique to certain classes, within their societies. Research shows domestic violence occurs in all social, economic, religious and cultural groups. Domestic violence encompasses partner violence, family violence, spouse abuse, child abuse, battering, exploitation and wife beating.
