Gender Based Violence takes place in almost all families, homes, Organizations, institutions, including churches and close relations, irrespective of their culture and religion. This justifies the fact that Gender Based Violence against women exists even in Christian families , but in most cases they go un noticed or un punished because of many reasons such as, fear of victimization, attitudes such as the faith, Christian beliefs and values, unfair judgment on women’s case, shame, guilt, lack of support from family members and the society.
