Abstract: In a fast-paced world, where technology, infrastructures and human capacity building are some of the key drivers of many societies. As growths and changes in these aspects and many other important areas of the societies becomes inevitable one would expect the same growth and positive changes in the area of women’s right to live and express themselves in all areas of the society such as social, political, entertainment, leadership etc. However, this isn’t happening in many societies today, as women are being systematically discriminated upon and subjected to live by certain rules and regulations unlike their male counterparts. This has been made very possible as many of these discriminating laws are mainly based on religious and traditional teachings and doctrines, which are mostly misinterpreted and used against women’s right to freedom and expressions in the entire society, in many occasions women and girls are made to believe that is for their own good but it turns out to be logically discriminating and oppressive in its entirety. Today men in many countries are given higher rights and priorities directly and indirectly as a result this leads to gender inequality and then violence against women of all sorts which is then justified. Women are expected to endure and live with such hash and some cases unbearable conditions imposed on them. The issues of domestic violence committed mostly against women generally, has clearly become a norm in many societies today with the authorities doing less or nothing. The methodology used in the research is mainly a qualitative approach in carrying out the study, and that is done by carrying out an in-depth comparative study of domestic violence against women in Malaysia and Iran this entails researching into the religious, traditional, political, societal, norms, laws, teachings, believes and awareness level in both countries.
