Gender inequality prevented Mercy and other women in her community to to have equal opportunities for education. They, therefore, lack knowledge of GBV policies and their rights making them succumb to violence

On the other hand, violence makes Mercy normalize and accept that men should always beat their wives. This exacerbates gender inequalities as Mercy and all the women will see themselves as inferior to men.
