This essay argues that there are some cultural biases or nuances that point towards violence against women in Nigeria. The author uses Johan Galtung’s typology of Violence and Peace, as well as primary and secondary data, to analyse violence against women in Nigeria. The conclusion touches on the implications of the reviewed literature for the community leaders, government parastatals, parents and the victims to take a proactive stand on addressing violence against women in Nigeria.
