Domestic assaults and violence consist of psychological aggression, sexual violence, physical assaults and homicides.

The acts are carried out mainly by family members, spouses, parents, siblings and intimate partners. Even with the existence of laws and advances in public actions aimed at combating these acts, victims still encounter barriers to reporting and seeking help. The reasons related are fear, lack of adequate support and, often, due to economic dependence.
