The Filipinos are known for having strong ties with their loved ones however, every family and every relationships has its grave problems in secrecy. Domestic violence in families, or intimate partner violence in relationships, is a poison left by the state for the family to resolve on its own.
This thesis aims to verify the idea that people who experience battering inside the domicile or while having a dating or sexual relationship deserve protection from the legislation, and that Section 26 of Republic Act. no. 9262, also known as the Anti-VAWC Act , should provide a broader definition of battered women syndrome to create a more favorable condition for all victims of domestic violence. This redefinition, which could be known as the battered person syndrome, shall resolve conflicting issues with constitutional mandates of equal protection, respect for human rights, and social justice.
