Abuse on Women
This is the question the researcher sat out to explore. While doing this research there were many problems that the researcher had to face. The researcher’s primary source Mrs.. Blair- Brown was practically inaccessible for the duration of the research as she was away on vacation. Despite numerous efforts made by the researcher an interview could not take place. It was very difficult to find an abused woman who would speak openly about the matter.
However, the researcher found a woman willing to speak to her and In fact, the interviewee was hopeful that the findings of the research would inspire women in similar positions to put an end to the abusive relationship. So through all my difficulties, I somehow achieved excellence. What is that Jamaican saying again? ” If huh really way if good huh nose Haifa run! ” well my nose ran a bit but I am much better now. The researcher’s efforts were rewarded as the interviewee proved to be very cooperative and was able to provide the researcher with the required Information.
The researcher had the pleasure of interviewing a victim of abuse. The interviewee wishes to use her right to privacy and as such will be referred to as Sarah Amuse during the course of this research. Sarah Amuse was married for eight ears and was like any other woman, excited to marry the man of her dreams. The first two years of her marriage was exactly as she had Imagined. Yes there were a few arguments but all these were easily resolved. According to Sarah things began to change shortly after the young marriage hit three years.
Since their first altercation the marriage began to deteriorate as her husband became more and more obsessive and abusive. For the next five years Sarah Amuse suffered at the hands of her husband at his whim. And it was with this in mind that the researcher decided to make Sarah Amuse a primary source for the research. The researcher believed that a research of this nature would be less effective without an interview of a woman who suffered the many horrors of an abusive relationship. Through a carefully structured Interview with Sarah Amuse many Interesting points were brought forward.
For instance, when asked why she said in the abusive relationship for that long she replied saying “well, we had, we still have a son who was very fond of his father. I thought that If we were to separate he would believe It was my fault and hate me. ” She then proceeded Into describing their altercations. There was really no reason for him to beat me. He would just get upset and hit me. He would take everything out on me. ” She was very emotional and teary eyed as she I OFF husband but all their efforts were futile for some time.
She realized that she finally had enough when she spent one week in the hospital. Sarah Amuse now advises all women who are currently in situations similar to hers to not make excuses for their husband/abuser, get out before it’s too late. You must love yourself first before anything else. The second primary source Mrs.. Marlene Blair-Brown has her Bachelors and asters in Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapy (LACE) which she obtained at the Southern Connecticut State University. Subsequently she was a registered nurse at the prestigious John Hopkins Hospital alongside Ben Carson.
It was with this in mind that the researcher chose her to be interviewed as her credentials prove her to be a very reliable source. The secondary source is an article found on women’s. Ca, the article was adapted from National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (UNCLAD). The Mission of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (UNCLAD) is to organize for collective rower by advancing transformation work, thinking and leadership of communities and individuals working to end the violence in our lives.
UNCLAD believes violence against women and children results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in intimate relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, homophobia, classics, anti-Semitism, able-bodying, ageism and other oppressions. UNCLAD recognizes that the abuses of power in society foster battering by perpetuating conditions, which condone violence against women and children. Therefore, it is the mission of UNCLAD to work for major societal changes necessary to eliminate both personal and societal violence against all women and children.
Macaws work includes coalition building at the local, state, regional and national levels; support for the provision of community-based, non-violent alternatives – such as safe home and shelter programs – for battered women and their children; public education and technical assistance; policy development and innovative legislation; focus on the leadership of Encased caucuses developed to represent the concerns of organizationally underrepresented groups; and efforts to eradicate social conditions which contribute to violence against women and children.
The article posits that asking questions such as “Why do women stay in abusive relationships” or “why don’t they leave” have a tendency?whether unintentional or not?to blame victims and to suggest they enjoy or thrive on being abused. Whoever it goes on to say that reasons for staying are far more complex than a blanket statement about a victim’s character or strength of will. The article then continues by stating that some women thrives room being abused since they were brought up in dysfunctional homes and being abused have became the norm.
The anxiety of waiting for the next outburst of violence then becomes more stressful and agonizing than the violence itself. They hate not knowing when they will next be hit, kicked, punched, burned, bitten, or stabbed, and they would rather “get it over with” than not know when they will next be abused. The article goes on to say it’s often fear that keeps women in abusive stalking them if they leave. They also fear that friends and family may not support their decision to leave. They fear being a single parent with little money.
