Violence against women is not only physical. There are also psychological forms of violence that are visible. These are degradation based on sex, sexism, chauvinism and similar forms of humiliation.

What to do with hidden forms of violence against women that are not in the official declarations and definitions?

The hidden forms of violence against women often happens in public life. At work, the most common form of violence is a hidden treat women as object, and complete disregard for job skills and work quality. It is a form of humiliation  for example - being treated as a decoration at the meetings.

Violence is also bad terating with the women that are not physically attractive. They usually never even get a chance to do certain tasks that are not closely related to aestethics.

Violence against women does not apply only men but also members of the same sex. It is the most common harassment or bullying because of better or poorer looking, better or worse position in society or at work. This also applies to girls of school age and adolescence.

Any form of harassment or contempt because of gender are the type of violence.

These are forms that are often hidden in the everyday life and attributed to something that is transitory. It is not so!

Each person must be treated with respect, especially  females that have left a strong impact both in science, art, and even the entire human race is extending.
