||OBJECTIVE: To determine the types and pattern of physical violence and relationship to prevailing gender culture characteristics in Grenadian society. DESIGN AND METHODS: Source data came from two classification table of types on the Physical Injury Scale to measure the magnitude of behavioural and sexual abuse in intimate partner violence, and summary tables of domestic violence cases recorded by Grenada Criminal Record Office between 2006-2014. A Contingency Table was used to cross tabulate variables across the Physical Injury Scale and police record summary data on domestic violence. Bivariate quantitative data on the variables were calculated. A social demographic analytical scale was used to correlate the cultural characteristics of the perpetrators. RESULTS: Physical assault represented 54% of all categories of violent abuse against women overall in 2010. Women also accounted for 42% of all homicide victims in 2012 and 75% of all other types of physical assault from the two months of record of the same year. The pattern continued with women accounting for 55% of victims of physical assault in 2013 and 41% up to September 2014. Common assault was the most frequent. Weapon of choice, in top order of rank, were the hand, cutlass and wood. CONCLUSIONS: Physical assault including wounding was the most common form of gender-based violence accounting for more than fifty percent of all cases. The predominantly male perpetrators were more than fifty percent unemployed, low or semi-skilled young adults.|
