Domestic Violence Against Women (Causes)

Bookmark and Share

here are many causes of domestic violence against women, but one of the main causes is drug and alcohol abuse. Abuse tends to happen when husbands/boyfriends or partners are in addicted states. Some causes stem from abusers who have learned the behaviour from their childhoods. It has been said that men who witness domestic violence as children, grow up to be "abusers" with women suffering similar childhoods grow up to be "victims".
Women make up the majority of victims suffering from domestic violence. Women are subjected to punishments for making large or minor mistakes. This abuse can involve physical abuse, verbal abuse, physiological abuse and traumatisation.
What can be done?
There are various organizations that provide support to women suffering from this epidemic. If you are suffering from abuse, you can obtain counselling by telephone. Counsellors can evaluate your situation and advice you.
Not everyone wants to leave their abusive situations. Some women choose to obtain support not only for themselves, but their abusers. If this is the case, attempt to resolve your differences on a personal level with your partner, and engage the necessary steps to eliminate the violent tendencies.
If you find that the violence is occurring resulting from something out of your control and you are in no way in a position to address the issue at hand. This means that you must consider the safety of yourself and your children.
Women who choose to stay in abusive environments should carefully evaluate available options with taking appropriate steps in ending the violence. Sadly, sometimes women do not realize until it is too late that their abusers must want support in order for things to change. The situation might need different approach by carefully studying your abuser. Or in a serious situation, it may be obvious that your abuser needs urgent attention, in that case rehabilitation might be the option. There are other causes of domestic violence against women. The issue of abuse should be taken seriously before it gets out of hand or causes irreparable damage.
