Policies of governments are usually political. But, they are presented in a manner that has the mask of neutrality. The space within four walls is the critical locality of violence against women. Engendering the State is not a simple matter. It has complex undertones. Some voices are heard while others are ignored or silenced. Data can be partially ignored or manipulated and can have multiple interpretations. There may be differences between the Global North and the Global South in responding to domestic violence (Mangala Subramaniam, Preethi Krishnan and Christopher Bunka 2014). But, whatever the differences, the facts are that many women around the world are facing violence in their homes. The culprits may be their near and dear ones.
