In our society gender discrimination still prevails. Young girls are brought up to believe that they are only suited for certain profession or, in some cases, only to serve as wives and mothers. Even today, women are expected to behave and dress a certain way and this subconsciously triggers domestic violence. The vicious cycle continues where small complaints from the husband escalate to verbal abuse and end up in a brutal physical abuse.
