India is traditionally a patriarchal country where women have always been given a secondary treatment. Women in India have always been treated shabbily and badly. They are always considered a weaker sex created to serve the men. They are always considered a worthless burden for their family. They have been various discriminations because of their sex. The headlines of every day newspaper bring the news of various discriminations meted out to women- eve teasing, female foeticide, dowry deaths and domestic violence. One of the major problems among these is the domestic violence against women. Domestic violence refers to the violence faced by the women within the realm of their homes. Within the four walls of their house, Indian women face various types of violence and abuses like physical abuse, emotional abuse, mental abuse, sexual abuse and even financial abuse. This paper analyses the domestic violence within a marriage with reference to Meena Kandasamy's When I Hit You. When I Hit You portrays the character of a writer who faces the various forms of domestic violence after her marriage. It focuses on the various struggles she faced in her marriage and the after-effects of walking out of an abusive marriage. As literature has the power to influence society, this paper aims to spread awareness among the society about the evils of domestic violence and urges them to take steps to curb this evil.
