This article is an attempt to describe the types of women and child victimization and to find out the changing trends and patterns for analyzing the root causes of violence in contemporary Bangladesh. To conduct the study, we have reviewed relevant articles, books, statistics, reports, and related literature situated within the framework of our subject. In order to analyze the data, we employed qualitative methods and thematic analysis techniques and we applied a critical feminists perspective. The study finds that Rape, murder, sexual harassment, dowry-related violence, acid violence, domestic violence, and trafficking are the common categories of women and child victimization. Further, the trend analysis reveals that reported victimization was reached its peaks in 2014 and 2015 while, the number of reported cases dramatically dropped in the last year. Notably, we argued marginality and the intersectional effect on gender, sexuality, ethnicity, minority status, discrimination, disability, and class are the main cause of the victimization of women and children. Finally, we conclude poor and marginal women are more likely to be victims of violent crime.
