Panama City, July 12-20, 2006

Attitudes towards domestic violence

rationale
Rationale
  • Refers to domestic violence against women and children
  • Refers to type of violence (psychological, physical, sexual), by perpetrator (husband/partner, parents, other persons), by time of occurrence (ever, last years, last 6 months)
  • Not a lot of systematic knowledge but enough information to know about its undesirability
  • Explicitly included in CEDAW and lately more actively discussed and considered as part of the MDGs and the WFfC documents.
  • It is not possible for example to reach the MDGs as long as women’s and children’s are abused

methodological issues
Methodological issues
  • Measurement of practices of violence against women, although possible, raised serious ethical and methodological issues
  • Possible via long modules that ultimately compete with other modules of equal importance
  • The attitudinal indicator has been found to be highly associated with the prevalence of domestic violence
  • It can be used then as proxy for violence and to advocate for the need to change, at the societal level, attitudes that perpetuate its existence
