Domestic violence in the Arab world is a very common phenomenon that affects thousands of Arab women and children and is objectively confirmed by official, organizational and university statistics, research results and fluent content analysis for ordinary and electronic media. Therefore, we believe that legal aid should be provided to women who have suffered from various types of violence, mainly domestic violence. In general, violence against women, including who does it and provides it, how much the victims bear, what factors contribute to impeding or curbing it, and what hinders opportunities to develop and sustain the termination. It is essential to understand the legal aid needs of victims in cases related to incidents of acts of violence, and in what direction and in what content the activities of the human rights of married women project should be developed. For fifty years, international bodies have been periodically drawing the attention of Arab regimes to the problem of domestic violence to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women in order to give due attention to their positive obligations, and to adopt specialized legislation to prevent violence against women in family and other measures to protect women from other forms of violence and establish a system patriotism and assistance in crises for victims of violence and the elimination of discrimination against women in all areas of human activity, especially in the field of work and employment and the protection of their rights. Despite all these calls, the domestic violence against women is still very high, to the extent that it is from various social and economic groups including different cultural backgrounds, various ethnic, religious, and educational origins. The magnitude of domestic violence is often disproportionately higher in rural areas where violent behaviour is still seen as a normal part of marital and family relationships.
