Researcher, Carrie Carretta (2008) states in her article, Domestic Violence- A Worldwide Exploration that women are more likely to be victimized by an intimate partner than men. Many studies have been done to prove this notion; for example, a survey of eight-thousand women and eight-thousand men conducted by the National Violence Against Women Survey found that twenty-two percent of women confessed that an intimate partner physically abused them while only seven percent of males reported the same. Another survey has demonstrated the same findings; annually, about 1.5 million women are sexually abused by an intimate partner in the U.S., while roughly 834,732 of men are abused (Carretta, 2008, p. 28).
More than one million people have experienced domestic violence. Mostly women are more likely to be abused or either killed by a partner. Most people that goes through abuse suffers from depression and low self-esteem. Men are also victims of domestic
There are many different types of domestic violence. Physical abuse is the most obvious form, but this is not to say that outsiders always recognize it. Generally, physical violence causes bodily harm, using a variety of methods. Slapping, pushing, throwing, hitting, punching, and strangling are only a few methods. An object or weapon may or may not be used. There is not always physical evidence of physical abuse such as bruising, bleeding, scratches, bumps, etc., therefore, absence of physical marks does not necessarily mean physical abuse had not occurred. Physical abuse sometimes escalates to murder (Morris and Biehl 7, Haley 14-17).
When people hear of domestic violence, the first thing they picture is battered woman. Domestic violence doesn’t have a prejudice; it can happen to you regardless of your race, age, sexual orientation, religion, or gender. Domestic violence can affect you no matter your background or education level. People tend to think domestic violence is only when a dominant spouse physically attacks the submissive spouse. Domestic violence is not only physical abuse; domestic violence can also be emotional abuse and financial abuse.

Domestic violence essentially affects everyone. It is not merely a personal or private problem within families. With this idea in mind, just how horrifying are the facts about domestic violence? According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (US Department of Justice), a woman is beaten every 15 seconds somewhere in the United States. The FBI reports that domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between 15 and 44 in the United States - more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. Furthermore, the US Surgeon General recounts that battered women are more likely to suffer miscarriages and to give birth to babies with low birth weights.

Domestic violence is a crime that occurs regularly within the United States. It claims millions of victims each year. There is not a specific cause to establish why domestic violence occurs. However, it has been documented that domestic violence is a product of physical, emotional, sexual, psychological, and any other forms of torture or torment that the particular abuser wishes to employ to gain control or power over their victims (Gosselin, 2005). Due to the complexity of this crime, many criminologists and socialologists have studied its causes and the effects in order to determine social policies and additional theories to better understand the causation of domestic violence. The social policies and theories that are developed from

What is domestic violence? According to research “Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another” (NCADV.ORG, 2015). In this essay there will be comparisons made with other countries and also be explained how they relate to America. Let’s start with America which has four major parts of domestic violence. Physical violence is probably the most common offense in the United States. Most of the victims of serious physical violence usually don’t report it or participate in surveys out of fear for retaliation. Intimate partner violence covers all major parts of domestic
Our existence can be illustrated by envisioning a painter who is fabricating a painting. As the painter begins to use the soft brush, its thistles with each movement construct systems and subsystems that are elaborately woven together to display biased perception of ourselves. Consequently, a misguided stroke may alter an exceptional piece of art turning it into a catastrophe. Regrettably, this metaphor unveils the misfortune that can occur in the lives of numerous individuals. Comparatively, like the painter who can be consumed by adversity, a victim of domestic violence with one misstep can eradicate his/her own life.
“Every year in the United States there are over 3 million incidents of domestic violence. That means that every nine seconds a women is beaten by her domestic partner” (Findeley). There are many women that stay silent when being abuse by their partners. The consequences of staying quiet when obtaining abuse can be dangerous and can also lead to death. Many women do not recognize the importance of the fact that there is in speaking out if they are being abuse by their partner. No woman should take domestic abuse by their partners. Every woman deserves a healthy relationship; A healthy relationship involves trust, respect, and consideration for the other person. Domestic abuse has gotten worse during the past years and is still rising up. One can see that domestic abuse can occur everywhere. Domestic abuse is considered a crime and woman should not keep silent when being abuse.
Every action is followed by a reaction; however, occasionally the reaction is only a temporary solution that leads to long-term consequences. This is especially true of how domestic violence is currently governed by the criminal justice system and social norms. A lack of preventative care exists and this ignores the consequences of domestic violence in our society. Incidents of domestic violence are often treated as one-time or isolated occurrences; however, in many cases abusers and victims fall back into these learnt behaviors. Therefore, domestic violence is a never-ending cycle that cannot be stopped without cultural and legal changes that focus on preventing further instances of violence and empowering victims to break the cycle.
