Even without exact counts of victims, one can easily say that family violence affects millions of women, men, and children across the United States and around the world. It is a crisis that either does or will affect us all. How we respond depends on the nature of the violence inclusive of cultural, economic, social, and political contexts. The consequences of this violence affect all of society, each community, and the children. Additional costs include lowered economic production, political and social instability and intergenerational transmission of violence. In this broadcast we will be providing an international examination of the global problem of domestic violence. 

Subjects covered in this broadcast include:

a) Battering, b) Sexual abuse of children in the household, c) Dowry-related violence, d) Marital rape, e) female genital mutilation, f) nonspousal violence, g) violence related to exploitation, h) physical, sexual, and psychological violence occurring within the general community, i) forced prostitution, and j) physical, sexual, and psychological violence perpetrated or condoned by the State.
