Gender-based violence (GBV) is often considered a private or family matter caused by insignificant misunderstandings and is often ludicrously justified by traditional patriarchy that links masculinity with violence. Such perceptions are not only used to decriminalize serious physical, sexual, psychological, emotional, economic, and societal offenses and limit the reporting of such dangerous violations of fundamental rights; such perceptions are also widely employed in male-dominated societies, such as Arab societies, to downplay the profound damage caused by GBV, especially to women and girls.
