|The study explored the experiences of black women in a rural community
regarding domestic violence. It was aimed at discovering what causes domestic
violence to women and how to prevent this type of violence.
Twenty black women participated in the study. These women were from
Ganyesa Village in the North West Province of South Africa. Demographic
characteristics included marital status, employment status, qualifications as well
as age distribution. Data was collected through individual interviews, and
questionnaires were completed anonymously. All participants responded to the
stimulus question: "How do you feel when being abused and what efforts do you
take to solve the problem?"
The method of investigation was a literature study and an empirical research.
Guidelines for a social work prevention programme were developed.
