Violence with in home is widespread and affects women throughout the society across all religious, class and caste boundaries. Domestic violence refers to any act of violence in the house. It includes differential treatment of girls, wife beating and abuse, torture of daughters-in-law and neglect of widowed women in the family. Domestic violence is one of the crimes against women which is linked to their disadvantageous position in the society. Therefore, domestic violence is recognized as the significant barriers of the empowerment of women, with consequences of women’s health, their health health-seeking behaviour and their adoption of small family norm. However, an attempt has been made by the researcher to study married women’ view about the domestic violence against them. The present study has been conducted in the developmental block Kandaghat of district Solan in Himachal Pradesh. The analysis shows that the most of the married women are likely to agree with reason I in the study for justifying the violence. Again domestic violence is more among women belonging to low educational qualification. The more such views were recorded by the ever married women of the region who agree with one specific reason for justifying the domestic violence against them.
