Gender violence are all forms by which a system of hierarchies forced by patriarchal culture is tried. Domestic violence is one of its forms, whose objective is to exert control and authority on the woman to conserve or to increase the power imposed by man in the relationship. Victims of this type of violence are put under a cycle made up of a series of repetitive behaviors that become even more frequent and serious over a time period .Domestic violence makes no distinction regarding age, race, religion, marital status or social class.

Keywords : Domestic Violence; Gender Violence; Gender; Sex; Cycle; Power; Woman.
