    DOMESTIC VIOLENCE LETS TALK ABOUT IT

  • Domestic Violence: Why Some Victims Never Leave

    in Radio

    Have you ever wondered what causes someone to stay in an abusive relationship. It’s a question often asked by people who’ve never experienced domestic violence: “Why doesn’t she just leave?” Sometimes, we ask this question because we truly don’t understand what might be keeping someone in a terrible relationship. Other times, this question is used as a way to blame women for the abuse they receive.


    The answer is individual to each woman, and the reasons can be pretty complicated. The truth is, leaving can be difficult even when you know it’s the right thing to do — the average domestic violence victim may try to leave multiple times before actually being able to make a clean break.

    When the Marginalized DeMarginalizes Series: Men as Domestic Violence Survivors

    in Women

    The discussion regarding male domestic violence has been given limited consideration due to social stigmatism and various aspects surrounding the abuse.  However, it does exist. According to data from Men:  The Overlooked Victims of Domestic Violence: 


    Although there has been an increase in the number of fatal domestic violence incidents against women, men are more likely to be victims of attacks with a deadly weapon. According to one study, 63% of males as opposed to 15% of females had a deadly weapon used against them in a fight with an intimate partner.Men who suffer domestic violence can only receive help if they break the silence. Not reporting domestic violence because of the stigma attached is the main reason that men currently receive few services, and one of the reasons that studies on the issue are so few [ http://domesticviolencestatistics.org/men-the-overlooked-victims-of-domestic-violence/].


    As WOCPSN begins it fourth-year of Walking In Violence for the Silenced:  Domestic Violence Solidarity Walk, we will begin a series of discussions regarding the marginalized within the marginalized.  Join us as we prepare for our annual walk that will take place November 7, 2016, at 8 am.  We will talk about how you can be a part of this important project while we increase awareness of men and domestic violence.

    DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, HONOR CRIMES, AND IMMIGRANT WOMEN: THE COMMON FACTOR

    in Current Events

    DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, HONOR CRIMES, AND IMMIGRANT WOMEN: THE COMMON FACTOR


    Domestic violence in the US, honor crimes in those “other” countries: are they really so different? And what can this mean for women who immigrate to the US and have experienced both?  What are the connections, what are the commonalities, and what are the realities for women of all cultures when it comes to victimization by intimate partners?


    Jessica Winegar says the 18,000 women killed by abusers in the US between 2003 and 2014 are no different from the women killed in the Middle East or South Asia. She is the Harold H. and Virginia Anderson Chair in Anthropology at Northwestern University. Her research specialization is in the Middle East, and she has written widely on issues of gender, Islam, and global politics.  Penny Venetis is Executive Vice President and Legal Director of Legal Momentum and as Clinical Professor of Law, and Director of the International Human Rights Clinic, at Rutgers, she specialized in civil rights and international human rights impact litigation. She instituted women’s rights projects in the Rutgers Law School clinics, developed human trafficking advocacy projects, and recruited and supervised pro bono attorneys from major law firms to work on the Clinic’s landmark cases.


    Join us as we discuss domestic violence, honor crimes, cultural similarities and differences, and the realities for women who are victimized.

    GUNS AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ABUSERS

    in Current Events

    There are federal laws saying convicted domestic violence abusers can't buy guns, but what if they already own firearms?  There's a good chance they can just keep them and no police or judges or even laws will make them surrender what they already own.  And even if a state does require relinquishment it's up to judges to require it.  Shannon Frattacoli, PhD., Associate Director for Outreach, Center for Injury Research and Policy at Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research has studied the effects of gun injury prevention policies. She will join us to talk about domestic violence, guns, and public policy laws.
