In the case of Angelique Lyn Lavelle was acquitted by the jury. I believe she was guilty of the crime even though her partner abused her and as testified in the case by Dr. Shane that was hired by the defense stated that Lavelle was characterized as a battered women based on his experience. To some extent this is true however, we have learned that sometimes that battered women are ashamed to tell others of their abuse and sometimes they are so much in love with that person that they keep going back to them
I am outraged, by the fact that Karla had to experience sexual abuse for eleven years. I experience a mix of feelings as I learned that at age 5 she was raped and that at age 12 her life became worst as she was forced to let herself be raped 30 or more times a day. It was clear in the beginning that she wanted the readers to keep the number 43,000 in mind because that’s the number of times she cried for help in four years. however, what outraged me the most was the fact that Mexico’s authorities took advantage of Karla and the other victims of sex trafficking instead of rescuing them. as authorities their responsibility was to do the right thing and save them instead of using them for their disgusting “evil necessities.” We desperately need
William Faulkner possesses a strong idea that a writer is given the privilege and duty of making man prevail. According to Faulkner this is the only thing that makes writing worth the effort put into it, and if an author cannot accomplish this duty there is no need for writing at all. Faulkner simplifies this complex obligation by presenting man as he really is through the “thruths of his heart,” which means including what really happens to man from “agony” to “compassion and sacrifice and endurance.” Many authors, including Frank McCourt, take on this duty and create a piece of literature that depicts man as his true self in order to assure he prevails instead of “merely edur[ing].” Frank McCourt honors this duty as a writer throughout his memoir, Angela’s Ashes. McCourt describes his journey to adult hood in a genuine way that shows not only the positive, but also the agonizing parts of his life. McCourt includes these completely contrasting types of experiences in order to help him accomplish the writer’s duty because they both involve immense amounts of feeling. The writer’s duty in McCourt’s work is expressed throughout the entire work from McCourt’s life as a child in the beginning of his memoir to the end as he becomes a true man.
Clearly, Angela is the name of McCourt’s mom. She was a hard working and dedicated mother. The book described her as a kind-hearted mother who wanted to share what she has, no matter how little it is. Moreover, she interfered with her husband about his wage so that she can feed her children. However, McCourt’s dad didn’t like that: “ He said she can’t do that, he’d be disgraced with the other men. The Labor Exchange is a place for men …” (McCourt 82) but she doesn’t stop and now Malachy is in trouble: “… Dad is a disgraced because a woman is never supposed to interfere with a man dole money.” (McCourt 82) She also encountered inequality because of her gender, her husband always discouraged her when she talks about working outside of the house:

Miles is easily seen as a monster, which shows that Giles’ tone towards Miles, or any other person like him, is plain disgust. In Amy Giles’ novel, Now is Everything, her tone toward the subject of domestic abuse is clearly shown throughout the novel. It should be obvious to the reader that Giles’ attitude towards domestic abuse is rather serious.
