DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TOWARDS WOMEN

Why I picked this topic

This is the field I want to go into once I obtain my Bachelor's Degree

Why do women stay in abusive relationships? What is the cycle of abuse? What are the effects of domestic violence to the mind?’ What are some situations that would cause a woman to not leave her abuser? What are some consequences of a woman leaving her abuser that would deter them from leaving?

Questions I thought of to formulate my thesis

THESIS

Domestic violence occurs every day in several homes across America. Women that are involved in an abusive relationship endure a wide range of abuse to include emotional, sexual and physical.

These women are subjected to domination by their partner, constant ridicule, separation from family and friends, possible physical violence every day and much more.

The question that always comes to mind when these cases are mentioned is “Why do they stay?” Several factors such as the destruction of self-esteem, which occurs with the mental abuse, fear for their lives and possibly their children’s lives and feeling like they have no safe place to go are reasons why the women stay with their abuser.
