Abstract: According to the United Nations Secretary General, gender equality has advanced in recent decades we are leaving in unprecedented global efforts to advance on women' empowerment. For example, girls' access to education has improved, the rate of child marriage declined and progress was made in the area of sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, including fewer maternal deaths. Nevertheless, gender equality remains a persistent challenge for countries worldwide and the lack of such equality is a major obstacle to sustainable development (Golombok et al, 1994, UNSG report, 2017). There are various inequity factors women confront. Women are the population that suffers most from different forms of discrimination. All of them root women's inferiority, women's dependence and as a matter of consequence, create a vicious circle of a domination system. Domination systems of men over women are all the more pernicious and harsher when combined with extreme poverty, remote living areas and conflicts. We discuss in this paper the fact that women are the population which underlive most difficult living conditions especially when violence and tradition are combined. Modelling life conditions put on the main factors of this violence and its consequences.
