Through these processes only those living on the edge can be brought into mainstream of the society contributing their fullest in the development of the nation. When issues like the diseases that have gripped this civilized world in this 21st century are discussed then the discussion will zero in to the seven different causes. They are Substance abuse, Homelessness, Prostitution, HIV, Violence, Poor Parenting and Poverty (Bloom, 5). But when the whole issue is delved into with greater care, each of the above stated causes has its roots or a part of it into Poverty. Poverty has its effect not only on the standard of living and social condition of an individual or the family but also on the psychological condition and mental state of the people. These people are more vulnerable towards some social abuse like alcohol abuse, substance abuse and economic abuse. The insecurity level is so high that sometimes it may lead to physical and sexual abuse. The condition of both male and female are critical and most of the time the life is on the edge. But females' lives in particular are more on tip of the knife. With slightest of mistakes they have to face domestic violence like beating, thrashing and sometimes forced intercourse. In the words of Mary Robinson, former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights "For women, gender is itself a risk factor threatening human security; the secret violence of household abuse, the private oppression of lack of property or inheritance rights, the lifelong deprivations that go with lack of schooling and the structural problem of political exclusion."

Being intelligent is a gift. The ability of analyzing things differentiates us from rest of the creatures. This ability has led humans to transform themselves from a nomad to a civilized one. But this civilization and development have been achieved with some cost which caused a gap between countries, societies and finally families. Some people are rich while rests are poor. If we talk of poverty as one of many reasons behind the evil of abuses especially household abuses then economic insecurity among women and children are very much the main factor causing all sorts of household abuses. The absolute poverty has nothing more than the scarcity or lack of things. They lack money, education, and self respect and have to face the indignity and humiliation of being homeless or living in a slum that is nothing more than a shelter above or near dirtiest drain with no life and happiness (Robinson, 6). The household is basically controlled by senior male members who don't give any say to female members over things leading to financial and economic condition of the family. They are mostly illiterate or have working knowledge of things which gives them some opportunity to earn money. All this laced with habits of alcohol or drug abuse makes up a very dangerous combination which ultimately gives way to exponential rise of household abuses. With mostly females and children at the receiving end, they are an easy target or prey. Alcohol abuse and drug abuse have long lasting effects which culminates to loss of health and aggravation of poverty. Persons with the habit
