Teachback, violence against women ppt

  1. 1. Violence Against Women Chapter 24 Chelsea Clemmer
  2. 2. What are violence and abuse?  Violence and abuse can either be physical or emotional. Although different, both are equally damaging to the victim.  Physically abuse: physical assault, sexual assault, and rape.  Emotional abuse: verbal assault, isolation, intimidation, and controlling behavior.
  3. 3. Statistics  A recorded 35% of women worldwide have been victims of intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence  30% of women in a relationship have been victims of physical or sexual violence from their partner  38% of global murders of women are committed by their partner
  4. 4. Why Violence?  Violence is a means of control and power.  When men are the abusers, they seek power over women.  In society (especially in the U.S.) men are “supposed” to be dominant, women are seen as submissive.  The dominance and submissive roles are usually implemented by the media.
  5. 5. “The Power and Control Wheel”
  6. 6. “The Power and Control Wheel”  This wheel explains physical and emotion abuse in detail.  It demonstrates how all avenues of abuse evolve from the need of the abuser to gain power and control.
  7. 7. “Cycle of Violence”
  8. 8. “Cycle of Violence”  The “cycle of violence” depicts the pattern that occurs within an intimate relationship that experiences abuse.  “Set up, abuse, and guilt” physical and/or emotional abuse occurs. “Guilt” blames the victim for the abuses against them.  “Excuses, normal behavior and fantasy” the abuser pulls the victim back in by justifying their actions and charming them.
  9. 9. Collateral Damage  The direct victims of abuse are not the only individuals affected.  Children are major recipients of damages related to intimate partner abuse.  Children growing up in a household of abuse may: develop PTS (post traumatic stress disorder), believe abuse is normal, become abused or the abuser later in life.
  10. 10. Prevention Helping others… DO  Ask if something is wrong  Express concern  Listen and validate  Offer help  Support his or her decisions DON’T  Wait for him or her to come to you  Judge or blame  Pressure him or her  Give advice  Place conditions on your support  Adapted from: NYS Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence (Smith and Segal)
  11. 11. Prevention  The most effective tactic in violence prevention is awareness.  Women need to know when abuse is occurring and how to get help to stop it.  There are many resources available to women such as: support groups, self defense classes, online resources for information and help, prevention hotlines and more.  If you or someone you know is or has been a victim of violence, it’s never too late to take action and seek help.
  12. 12. Reflections  A quote that stuck out to me in our reading came from page 698 under “The violence was not your fault.”  “It must have been her behavior, she must have provoked him somehow, it must have been what she was wearing, where she was…”  This quote deeply saddens me. I cannot believe that some women blame themselves for getting abused but more shockingly I cannot believe that some try to justify the abuse.
  13. 13. Discussion  Did this week’s reading surprise you at all?  Did you realize how common abuse against women was?
