STUDY ON SPOUSAL CONFLICT AND HUMAN RIGHTS NEXUS: ABUSE AGAINST MEN IN TEMA COMMUNITY TWO AND ITS ENVIRONS

ABSTRACT 

The study set out to examine female spousal conflicts against men. The study revealed that female spousal violence was in existence in Tema Community Two and its environs. The common types of spousal violence were physical, verbal, sexual and psychological. The spousal violence were mainly caused by cheating on the part of men, children from other marriages, prevention of male dominance and alcohol abuse. In respect to the impact of these spousal violence, physical injuries, emotional problems and low self-esteem were the negative outcomes of female spousal violence against men. The study concludes that some of the male victims who were physically abused often required medical attention at hospitals.  The study concludes that verbal abuse was usually administered when the victim was under financial pressure as he could not provide for the family. The study concludes that some of the major causes of female domestic violence against men infidelity were that husbands are involved in extra marital affairs. The study found out that some of the victims reported the violence of their partners to either the church, relatives or the police while others claimed not to have reported for fear of public ridicule. The study recommended that the top management of the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) should be given international exposure through international conferences on domestic violence because some female perpetrators pretend to be victims. The study further recommended that efforts and resources should be given to the police and other NGOs for campaigns for attitudinal change in the larger society so that masculinity identities which hinder male victims from exposing violence against them could be minimized or curtailed.
