Iran’s Women Enduring “Coercive Control” During COVID-19

Iran’s Women Enduring “Coercive Control” During COVID-19

Hide

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, domestic violence, as the most common type of violence against women, had been raised globally. Lockdown, as a security measure taken during the pandemic, has forced women to stay at home with the people who are the perpetrators of violence against them. In this predicament, it seems that the number of victims in countries like Iran, in which women have no support from civic society and the legal authorities, is higher than in other communities. Likewise, this research aims to assess the prevalence of domestic violence against Iranian women during the pandemic, based on some scattered reports, recent interviews, and field studies. Accordingly, “coercive control” is used as a tool to analyze the data collected in this study.
