Why is it important?

The presence of working laws on domestic violence can reduce the incidence of DV and its health impacts on women. This study explores this hypothesis and found that the presence of law reduces the incidence of GBV and its health effect on women.


Being part if this work adds to what I represent, the voice for the marginalized. It gives me the opportunity to gain knowledge on DV, even deeper by reading stories and published works of experts in the field of interpersonal and intimate partner violence. I enjoyed working with different colleagues that we both shared feminist belief.
