Women and men around the world face gender based violence (GBV), keeping in mind that this phenomenon is independent of place, culture, and religion. In America the cases of gender based violence becomes diverse as we have more variables to observe. Such variables are nationality, sexual orientation, and socio-economic backgrounds. For the purpose of this paper the researcher will focus on domestic violence in American society observing religious beliefs, legal system, and economic factors that come into play when discussing the matter of domestic violence. The paper will put the issue in the context of intersectionality and why this still continues to be an issue in today's time.
