Domestic violence, Pursuant to Kenya’s Protection against Domestic violence Act (PADV) of 2015, is any form of violence against a person, threat of violence or imminent danger to that person, by any other person with whom that person is, or has been in a romantic relationship.
DV is similar to intimate partner violence (IPV) and includes physical, emotional and sexual abuse and controlling behaviors by a former or current intimate partner or spouse.
Within the Kenyan jurisdiction, DV victims are majorly women with statistics showing that 40% of Kenyan Women are likely to face DV
