The definition of violence against women by United Nations documents
Violence against women is a manifestation of historically unequal social relations of power between men and women, which have led to domination over and discrimination against women by men and to the prevention of the full advancement of women. Violence against women is one of the crucial social mechanisms by which women are forced to be in a subordinate position compared with men. Violence against women is an obstacle to the achievement of equality, development and peace.
