In this study, we have used quantitative survey research method to investigate the level of domestic violence against women in the city of Khoramabad. Using stratified sampling method, 210 women victim of domestic violence were selected and responded to the questionnaires. In the theoretical framework, we have used theories of social supervision, social learning, role theories, source theories, and Rendell Collins and Melvin Taman's theories. According to study results, the level of domestic violence (in an interval of 1- 5) was 3/90 which is quite high. The results of the correlation test show that domestic .violence and its dimensions (psycho-verbal, direct and indirect physical and socio-economic violence) are significantly correlated with husband's authority, inconsistent interpretation of one's role, burdensome role, the age difference between couples, and childhood experience of domestic violence. These are also inversely correlated with socio-economic status of husband. Furthermore, according to results of multiple regression analysis the variables of husband's authority, inconsistent interpretation of one's role, burdensome role, and socio-economic status of husband had a direct and significant correlation, while according to path analysis, variables of age difference between couples and childhood experience of domestic violence had an indirect significant effect on domestic violence.
