Author(s):

Abstract:
Domestic violence often termed as domestic abuse or familial violence is violence or other abuse in a domestic setting, such as in marriage or cohabitation. It is often committed by a spouse or partner in an intimate relationship against the other spouse or partner. Various research conducted around the world have proved that wife beating is a universal phenomenon. Domestic violence situations, prevention and its eradication depend on the type of attitudes carried by young adults. Therefore, the descriptive research was proposed to study aimed to find the attitude of young adults towards domestic violence. A Total number of 240 male and female young adults were selected as sample of research through Population Proportion sampling method from two colleges of G.B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology. To achieve the research objective, a tool namely Attitude Scale on Gender-based violence (A-GBV) was developed and thereafter reliability and validity of the tool was calculated before its application. Suitable statistical methods i.e. frequency, percentage, p value and correlation were applied on collected data to derive the research results. After analysis and comparing the data, the finding of the research reflected strong disagreement towards domestic violence. A significant association was also found between attitude of young adults towards domestic violence and selected independent variable i.e., age, gender, college and family income.
