Fatherhood & Violence

Fatherhood & Violence

Studying the gender power dynamics in context of fatherhood can help us understand the reasons behind VAW and children. Violence is a violation of human rights and there are certain risk factors involved as well such as, poverty, legal and political dis-empowerment, inadequate prevention and response systems, community norms about gender and about violence being a private matter, relationship conflict, substance (alcohol) abuse and mental health issues. Also if children witness violence in their household they will probably adopt that in their adulthood.
