The Center Against Domestic Violence is an American not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to preventing violence in the family and to promoting the well-being and economic independence of women and children.It provides safe shelters, a network of supportive services, advocacy, education and resource information services and building coalitions.Domestic violence is currently defined in India by the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act of 2005.

The study included in its definition of "sexual violence" all instances of a woman experiencing her husband "physically forcing her to have sexual intercourse with him even when she did not want to; and, forcing her to perform any sexual acts she did not want to".

This figure includes all forms of forced sexual activity by husband on wife, during their married life, but not recognised as marital rape by Indian law.

The center operates three shelters, Women’s Survival Space, Women’s Safe Start, and Women’s Second Start.

The shelters provide a safe place for survivors and their children, and offer services to assist them as they work through the trauma of domestic violence.

The relationship between Islam and domestic violence is disputed.

Even among Muslims, the uses and interpretations of sharia, the moral code and religious law of Islam, lack consensus.

, A 2014 study in The Lancet reports that the reported sexual violence rate in India is among the lowest in the world, the large population of India means that the violence affects 27.5 million women over their lifetimes.

The 2012 National Crime Records Bureau report of India states a reported crime rate of 46 per 100,000, rape rate of 2 per 100,000, dowry homicide rate of 0.7 per 100,000 and the rate of domestic cruelty by husband or his relatives as 5.9 per 100,000.

Causes of sexual violence are debated and explanations of the cause include military conquest, socioeconomics, anger, power, sadism, sexual pleasure, psychopathy, ethical standards, laws, attitudes toward the victims and evolutionary pressures.
