The world is currently experiencing a period of tension and instability, manifested in various unusual social phenomena, most notably the phenomenon of domestic violence and the emergence of violence in a blatant form, which has caused us concern and raised questions about how to respond to such phenomena and what can be done to reduce the dominance of violence. This is especially important given the complexity and level of development of our social organizations. In light of these considerations and potential consequences, and given that there are strong indications of certain patterns of violence specifically targeting women and exposing their lives and abilities to danger, simply because they are women, it is necessary to address the issue of "Women and Social Violence. " Although violence against women is not a new phenomenon in human history and has always been present since ancient times, it has become a growing concern in recent years, particularly due to the noticeable increase in violent behavior in Arab countries. There are incidents of murder, rape, coercion into prostitution, physical assault, sexual coercion, invasion of privacy, and exposure to harm.
