Mary’s Experience of Domestic Violence

It was love at first sight when I met my boyfriend James at a football game in high school. He and I met when my friends and I were leaving after the game, and he and I accidentally bumped into each other. It was match made it in heaven when I saw him – he is a handsome guy with jet black hair, deep glaring black eyes and a smile that could light up a room. Plus, his body was to die for. He had a jealous streak and a hot temper but I never paid that any mind. I still wonder sometimes why he wanted me when I was just an average girl with dark hair and brown eyes with an average body. It still puzzles me sometimes. Continue reading

Percentage of Violence Against Men

For a long time, domestic violence has been associated and understood exclusively as an issue of women. All attention is given to the females who are abused by men, but unfortunately, men who are abused by women are overlooked. According to a report, more than 40% of the victims of domestic violence are male. This percentage of male victims might seem very high to some people, but this is a fact and this number is continually growing. Continue reading

Recognising Psychological Abuse

Psychological abuse

The 21st century has opened up more information that women can draw upon due to the printing press, the Internet and the media (although, take a lot of what is presented to you on the television with a grain of salt). This means that women are much more aware that they can have a bigger influence than they had in the past. Due to the Feminist movement of the sixties, Western women have more choices available to them, which for some is a good thing and for others perhaps not. The Church has decreased in influence, which is beneficial because the controlling ways of religion are gone, however, the good influences are gone as well….. which isn’t necessarily a good thing. Humans still need some guidelines as to how to live in a decent manner, so the loss of these teachings has had a negative effect upon society and is evident in the behaviour of people today.
