Compiled: Zubaida Khaled Publishing place: Peshawar Publishing year: 2005 Description: 256 p; tables & graphs Preface Background Summary analysis and conclusions Chapter 1: Baseline Survey Chapter 2: Respondent s Profile Chapter 3: Socio-culture context and Gender Roles Chapter 4: Emerging patterns of Domestic violence Appendices List of tables Talking about domestic violence is considered a trespass because there is a very thin line between private and public spheres. In these circumstances, where both personal and political matters are handled by the society, it is very difficult to talk about the domestic violence. Discussing domestic violence is considered as peeping inside someone s home. Carrying out a survey on this sensitive issue was not an easy job. The districts selected for the survey were Charsadda, Swabi and Swat. The criterion used for the selection of the districts was; increased number of incidence of violence reported from the selected districts, stronger adherence to traditional and conservative life style of the communities, representing particular geographic regions of the Province.
