Transcript: Domestic Violence Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and abusive behavior perpetrated by an intimate partner against another. It is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community, regardless of age, economic status, race, religion, nationality or educational background. Violence against women is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior, and thus is part of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence results in physical injury, psychological trauma, and sometimes death. The consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and truly last a lifetime. Research children who witness violence between parents or caretakers are the strongest risk factor to pass violence from one generation to another. Males that witness violence are two times as likely to abuse their partner and children when they become adults 30% to 60% of abusers of an intimate partner will also abuse children in the household.

Transcript: Domestic Violence -wife abuse- -battered women- -rapes- -a slap- -a punch- Spouse murders account for 1/8 of all homicides in the U.S. Studies of violent families show that the violence escalates over time, becoming more intense and more frequent. In 8.5% of murders of spouses, the police had been called 5 or more times. The abuse was becoming more serious, and these wives were reaching out for help. Try to fight back Women who attempt to fight back very often place their lives in jeopardy and may end up seriously injured or dead. Frequently, women who are victims of escalating battering are forced, in an effort to defend themselves, to use a weapon.. Fear The police can't do anything because abused women don't want to prosecute and they can't get involved in a domestic squabble, even when the woman is visibly injured. Sometimes the officer trivializes the crime by telling the man to walk around the block. This reinforces social approval of male violence and the idea that a man owns his wife.

Transcript: Photo based on: 'horizon' by pierreyves @ flickr Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors used to exert power and control over a dating partner. Examples Step 1: Use modern social media, such as Facebook and Twitter to out agressors of domestic violence. Post recordings, texts, videos and pictures of the abuse and abuser. Step 2: Keep a diary or journal of every incident of abuse. A password protected online journal or blog that can be exposed if something happens to you. Step 3: If you have any suspicions before entering a relationship, use social media to check their background and trust your instincts. Step 4: Self confidence and high self esteem is your best defence, never lose it. Domestic Violence Alcoholism and Substance abuse leads to poor decision making and loss of self control. Stress from unemployment Social instability Financial worries Stress of any kind can cause rage and acts of violence due to feelings of frustration. Infidelity-a cheating spouse May cause revenge type rage towards your partner Mental instability Loss of self control and empathy Children who witness or are the victims of violence may learn to believe that violence is a reasonable way to resolve conflict between people. Abusers learn violent behavior from their family, people in their community and other cultural influences as they grow up. They may have seen violence often or they may have been victims themselves. Physical-punching, kicking, burning, slapping, stabbing, throwing and using objects as weapons. Psychological-playing mind games, insulting, isolation from friends and family, criticising, denying the abuse, blaming and threatening to harm family. Financial-taking money, not letting you work, refusing to give money and making you beg for money. Sexual-rape. What is Domestic Violence? On April 10th 2012, two reports showed sexual and domestic violence at epidemic levels in Massachusetts. A group called Jane Doe Inc. said nearly half the women and a quarter of men have experienced some form of sexual or domestic violence in their lifetime. Between 1,000 and 1,600 women a year are killed by their domestic partner. This does not include the women who kill them self in order to exit violent relationships. Factors that contribute to Domestic Violence Sources My Plan to Reduce Domestic Violence There should be more elementary, middle, high school and college programs to educate and increase the reporting of domestic violence since up to 95% of cases go unreported. Increase funding for violence treatment and prevention programs. I believe that making the punishment for domestic abuse higher would actually keep women from reporting these crimes. Domestic Violence in America Ways to Reduce Domestic Violence 1 in 7 women in Multnomah County ages 18 to 64 are physically abused by their intimate partner each year. 1 in 5 teenagers in a serious relationship reports being hit, slapped or pushed by a partner. 21,000 children in Multnomah County are exposed to domestic violence each year. In Oregon, 48% of victims remain in an abusive home because they do not have a safe and affordable place to live. 38% of all domestic survivors become homeless at some point.
