Abstract [en]

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a global public health and gender problem, especially in low-income countries. The study focused oil verbal abuse, physical abuse and abuse by restricting food provision to wives by their husbands by victim and perpetrator characteristics, emphasizing the socioeconomic context of rural Bangladesh. Using a cross-sectional household survey of 4411 randomly selected married women of reproductive age, the study found that a majority of the respondents are exposed to verbal abuse (79%), while 41% are exposed to physical abuse. A small proportion (5%) of the women had suffered food-related abuse. Risk factors observed were age of the wife, illiteracy (of both victims and perpetrators), alcohol misuse, dowry management, husbands monetary greed involving parents-in-law, and wifes suspicions concerning husbands extramarital affairs. Well-established risk factors for wife abuse, along with dowry and husbands monetary greed, have a relatively high prevalence in rural Bangladesh.
