do culture & social beliefs trigger domestic violence

In our country, I believe social beliefs, gender discrimination and domestic violence are somehow interconnected. Gender discrimination begins at birth. In most cultures and religions gender lines are drawn early and hence both boys and girls are subjected to stereotypes. Girls grow up feeling powerless whereas boys tend to feel more superior, leading to domestic violence.
