Domestic Violence & Abuse
Introduction
Domestic violence, also known as domestic abuse, against women remains a major issue in today’s society. Domestic violence occurs between two people or more. The abuser is often described as being the man due to the large physical advantage but it can also be the woman. Domestic abuse shows no inclination in any gender. Domestic violence is very common is households and after researching the causes of this social issue, one can conclude that it usually starts with a controlling behavior to control someone that feels fragile or inferior. In this paper, I will analyze three different forms of literature. The first being a website article, Injury Prevention and Control: Division of Violence Prevention by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The second type of literature will be a magazine article, When Your Partner Is Abusive by Meghan Rabbitt from the Women’s Health. The last piece of literature will be a peer-reviewed scholarly journal article, Summer’s Death by Lori Ann.
In this paper, I will introduce three pieces of literature that will help society to comprehend Domestic Violence and how individuals have overcome this negative and tragic experience. I will also give more knowledge to those who want to help end this issue in today’s society. The three pieces of literature will follow the CSUN Library Evaluating Internet Resources guidelines.
