  7. 7. Case Study on Intimate Partner Violence and Women’s Contraceptive Use In US : INTRODUCTION:- Intimate partner violence has been hypothesized as a factor associated with women’s risk for problems in contraception use or access. This article explores differences in contraceptive use between abused and nonabused women, using a case–control study of 225 women Intimate partner violence has been hypothesized as a factor associated with women’s risk for problems in contraception use or access.
  8. 8. RESULT:-
  9. 9. This article adds to the literature on women’s contraceptive decision making as well as the discussion about unintended pregnancies and IPV. Although this was a fairly small study, there appears to be evidence suggestive of different contraceptive use patterns among abused and nonabused women that should be further explored in larger studies.
  10. 10. INTRODUCTION:- Reproductive health of women has recently become focus of attention due to its implications for women's own health, health of their children, family members, socioeconomic development of society, and population programmes. :- CASE STUDY-ii PSYCHOSOCIAL, CULTURAL AND SERVICE FACTORS AFFECTING REPRODUCTIVE
  11. 11. 1.To examine socio-economic and demographic characteristics of women, and cultural and service related factors affecting health/illness and treatment seeking behaviour related to different reproductive morbidity conditions. 2. To identify the factors affecting tolerance threshold and consultation lag for different reproductive morbidities. 3. To examine the relationship between different types of health behaviours and different reproductive morbidities. 4. To determine the relationship between health behaviour and severity level of a morbid condition.
  12. 12. CASE STUDY TWO GETS LIFE SENTENCE FOR A DOWRY MURDER CASE Erode: Principal district judge A.S Kannan awarded life sentence to mother and son in a dowry murder case. Dharmalingam (45), a bangle merchant of Bhavani married Jayakumari (36)16years ago. He used to torture his wife asking for more dowries. On Aug 29, 2009 he demanded to bring 5 sovereigns of gold from her father ,on refusal of her, he caught hold of her and his mother put kerosene on her and set fire her body. She sustained serious burns and died in hospital. This is just one example of all such tortures done on women for dowry. She gets beating, burnt to fire, mentally tortured, forcefully made to work as prostitutes, and the series goes on.
  13. 13. CASE STUDY COMMUNITY VIOLENCE : PATHETIC CONDITION OF FEMALE GIRLS: Not only women but girls of around 5years are also part of this violence against women. In Jambumadai, a remote village in Trichy district.This lies in a backward area of this districts where no river is there but depends on rain for its every crop. Here, a traditional practice of burying a girl till neck is followed on the day of solar eclipse. It’s a myth here that if a girl is buried on the day of solar eclipse from the time eclipse starts till it end, then all types of mental and physical problem a girl is having will be cured!!! Some times, girls do die due to improper flow of oxygen taking place by the time when she is buried. These types of traditional practices of playing with the life of girls should be stopped.
  14. 14. SOCIETAL RESPONSES AND EFFORTS OF GOVERNMENT IN CONTROLLING VIOLENCE  Many NGO’s have organized trainings and group discussions, as a result of which “honor killings” were for the first time discussed in public. The project led to positive changes in knowledge, attitudes and practices among community members who increasingly began to regard “honor killings” as a crime, rather than a legitimate means to defend a tribe’s honor.  Recently a new family counseling center has been set by the joint efforts of Tamilnadu social welfare board Chennai, and the Tiruchi city police .Tiruchi is the second city in the state to have such center with the joint initiative with police to redress the grievances of affected women and provide relief to those in distress. There are already 66 such counseling centers working in the state.  The concept of All women police station (AWPS) has been successfully started .These women police station also provide counseling through professional counselors to help women in overcoming distress.
  15. 15. The Crimes identified under the Indian Penal Code (IPC): (1) Section 376 (rape) (2) Kidnapping and abduction for different purposes (Sec.363 – 373 IPC) (3) Homicide for dowry, dowry deaths or their attempts (Sec.302, 304-B IPC) (4) Torture, both mental and physical (Sec.498-A IPC) (5) Importation of girls (up to 21 years of age.(Sec.366-B IPC) (6) Molestation (Sec.354 IPC and Sexual harassment (Sec.509 IPC) The Crimes identified under the Special Laws : 1)Commission of Sati (Prevention) Act 1987 2) Dowry (Prohibition) Act 1961 3) Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act 1956, 4) Indecent Representation of women (Prohibition) Act 1986 5) The Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act 1971 and so on.
  16. 16. From the words of a WOMEN... , with a deeper instinct choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demand on me, who does not doubt my courage, or my toughness, who does not behave me naïve or innocent, WHO HAS COURAGE TO TREAT ME LIKE A WOMEN…
