Abstract: The acts of violence, in all their forms, constitute a serious violation of human rights. Domestic violence is a particular phenomenon, considering the fact that its consequences affect the whole family, and its implications also have an important social component. Although in its original form it regards both man and woman in the role of victim, the much higher ratio in favor of women makes the name refer mainly to the aggression on the woman. This phenomenon is present throughout the world, in all social classes, both among the native population and among the emigrants. This paper highlights the postmodern approach to domestic violence. The authors discuss the general context of such acts of violence, the difficulties faced by victims in finding support, the difficulties faced by authorities in providing support, and the particular situation of the forensic doctor when examining the victims of this type of violence, through the ethical and professional framework.
