    867 words
    Domestic violence is a topic that many of us will not feel affected by, but as a matter of fact this kind of violence is skyrocketing in our society. In the U.S., as many as 1.5 million women and 850,000 men were physically assaulted by their intimate partner last year, and numerous children abused by their parents.

    Currently, protective orders are only provided during regular court hours to victims of domestic abuse.

I deal very often with both inward and outward doubts about the possible hypocrisies involved in becoming a piece of the infrastructure of a machine whose actions I may often disagree with.

Numbers like these show how intense the situation of domestic violence trul...

    ... cion by those who see domestic violence as a political issue to be exploited rather than a social problem to be solved. Studies of women who murderCoramae Mann, a criminologist at Indiana University, studied the case records of all murders committed by women between 1979 and 1983 in six major U.S. cities.

    Pornography Can Lead To Violence toward Women Domestic violence and sexual assaults on women continue to plague American culture. According to Ms. Magazine, a woman has a seven times greater chance of experiencing a sexual attack in the present time than in 1933. This statistic indicates major changes in male attitudes about sexual aggressiveness toward women. It seems that men have an increasingly lower esteem of women. Why do women experience abuse now more than ever One may look to American c...
  • Womens Autonomy And Male Violence
    3,824 words

  • Relationship Of Alcohol To Intimate Partner Violence
    954 words
    I chose this particular topic because I have a friend that was in an abusive relationship. I didn't really understand why she stayed with him for so long. I first started suspecting that she was being abused was when I was on the phone with her and heard him screaming at her in the background. She yelled back and played it off like nothing was wrong. She said usually he was a good guy, but merely had a bad day. I kept asking her why she stayed with him and she always replied that she loved him. ...
