Some studies showed a positive correlation between the violent threats towards victims and their decision not to pursue charges or any other mediation (Artz, 2011). In other words, threatened violence by the offender directed towards the victim was a reason behind the victim failing to cooperate. Artz (2011) further notes studies performed in the 1990’s showed women may not follow through with the process due to the criminal justice process itself. The process is very time consuming and with multiple court dates, taking off work and finding adequate childcare can create issues (Artz, 2011, p. 8). These studies also found the problems that can occur with the service of protection orders, misunderstanding of the criminal justice system itself, and once again, being afraid of the offender, will serve as a determining factor in a victims’ willingness to cooperate with further court proceedings.

Cohan in writing this essay recognizes that women are being misrepresented and harmed by ads. He feels that this issue needs to be brought to advertisers attention, his main audience, and hopes for women’s representation in ads will be healed. To start off Cohan’s essay, he opens up on a positive note, as to ease the reader into the rather immoral issue of exploiting women in advertising. He firsts notes that there is “a good deal of good advertising” out there (Cohan 323). He provides the example of Lancome cosmetics, which unlike many other companies, is making a conscious effort to not heavily touch up their models.
According to the survey that I completed in “The Conflict Style Assessment” found in the Conerly article my style is that of Confronting. I will agree in some degree with the style because I do place a high value on relationship goals and I am assertive and cooperative (Conerly, 2004). I believe it is important in a work environment for people to work as a team. As much as I understand that everyone may not like each other, I believe it is important to be respectful of all parties concerned and get along. I also believe if given an opportunity most people will be able to see the good in others and forge a relationship of some sort.
There are times when outside organizations can play a key role in ensuring success when enforcing the law. Take the Sacramento Police Department (SPD) as an example. Members within the SPD established a Domestic Violence Prevention Collaboration (DVPC) This was in response to the many cases of domestic violence that were left unsolved because of the lack of cooperation from the victims. It is well known throughout the criminal justice system that cases involving domestic violence are difficult to investigate because of how highly sensitive they are. Victims tend to stop cooperating with law-enforcement once the emotions have left them, or when the offender begins apologizing and offering fake promises to the victim.
We cannot learn violence without someone teaching violence, but one cannot teach violence without first learning violence. So, violence is always within us, it is a matter of having self-control and keeping our violent behavior at bay. Many members of our society cannot understand why women stay in abusive relationships. Women often feel that leaving is not an option when it comes to leaving an abusive relationship. This is due to the battered woman’s syndr... ... middle of paper ... ...tic violence is finally starting to attract more attention from the federal government and stricter laws are starting to be enforced in certain states.
There should be encouraging depictions of women taking notice of their role in all aspects of life. As a result it can be concluded that the general effect of the illustrations of women in the media to strengthen rather than condense injustice and stereotypes. The mass media in the United States has not made sufficient efforts to argue serious issues regarding women and arrange the women to play their correct and equivalent role in society. To alter this situation, it is required to observe the media and point out the qualities and faults constantly.
Her anger also hinders her from having close relationships with others. Ms. M’s emotional issues are causing her to experience some distress. Her distress may manifest as depression, anxiety, apprehension, or other various issues (i.e., lethargy and insomnia). Moreover, she is often confused by her feelings and inconsistently uses them to make decisions. In addition, Ms. M may deal with her feelings on an intellectual level, which creates a sense of denial where she is unable to comprehensively understand the impact of situations.
“A domestic violence victim may both love and fear the man who abuses her…” (McCray 393) Little do people legitimately think why a victim does not assent; disregarding all of the pain their abuser had caused them and living a new life elsewhere. To most people, the rational thing to do would be leave without a word. It is not as easy as that. Why do victims not leave their abuser? On occasion, victims will not leave their abusers due to the fact that leaving could cause more harm and be less safe.
Not developing these habits can become harmful later on in life--in social and professional relationships. If an individual has no tolerance, or don’t have good work ethics, chances are that their mentor will recognize this deficiency and might not accept them for jobs. Having patience and good work ethic is not valued in the societal implications of the “child-man” ethic, therefore, this harms the habits and personalities of these individuals. Secondly, the relationships of these “child-men” are altered due to their ethics and their values. Since the majority of these men do not respect women, they do not treat them well—instead, they view women as objects.
