Abstract

This paper tries to examine the factors related to domestic violence against women in rural Bangladesh and find the remedies to this problem. A cross-sectional study was conducted at Kandigoan Union Parishad under Sylhet Sadar Upazila in Sylhet district, Bangladesh. Data were collected using social survey method. Two- stage cluster sampling method was applied to select the sample. Chi-square test was applied to examine the association between independent variables and dependent variable while binary logistic regression was applied to measure the effects of socio-economic factors on domestic violence against women in the household. The chi-square test shows that the age of wife, age of husband, NGOs’ membership of wife and couple’s income were related to the battering by husbands. Logistic regression shows that wife’s working status, age of husband and couple’s income were related to women battering by husbands in the family.

Key Words: Bangladesh, Domestic Violence, Household, Husband, Women.
