ABSTRACT

The over-riding aim of this research work is to examine the prevalence and effects of domestic violence against women in Lagos State, a case study of Mushin Local Government Area. 

To effectively carry out this research, data was collected in form of questionnaire from respondents who are people living and working in Mushin LGA. (150) one hundred and fifty questionnaire were administered, (118) one hundred and eighteen copies were returned and (100) hundred copies are used. After critical analysis of the data collected, findings revealed that the prevalence and effects of domestic violence against women in Lagos State cannot be over emphasized in reducing the rate of violence against women.

In our society, many women are violently treated by their intimate partners while they suffer in silence. In some cases, domestic violence leads to the death of these women. This should not be allowed to continue because women are crucial to the growth and development of any nation and the world at large. They are homemakers, custodians of social, cultural and fundamental values of the society; and permanent change is often best achieved through them. Full community development is impossible without their understanding, cooperation and effective participation. Considering all these, women deserve better treatment but opposite is usually the case. Wife battery affects the physical and psychological wellbeing of the abused women and even that of their children.
