    Studies show that although beliefs do not cause violence against women they matter. Certain beliefs provide an environment where perpetrators find it possible to justify their behaviour through distortion or extension of religious teachings. Conversely, religious beliefs and practices also serve as protective factors against intimate partner violence. Continued progress is needed toward the development of faith based violence prevention approaches, which include raising awareness among religious leaders about how religious beliefs impact their members’ personal safety.
