Women’s Abuse -It’s so crucial because 1. Without help girls who witness domestic violence are more vulnerable to allowing abuse to continue. 2. People are going to belittle the importance of it and therefore fail to take action/ acknowledge as being so severe when it occurs. 3. Society as a whole will regress. We believe the best way to approach this is by sparking a change in our culture.

However, often it is spoken with an undercurrent of hostility or disbelief (i.e. “It couldn’t have been that bad” or “You must have liked it” or “If you wanted to leave, you would have.”), sending a message that women who stay in abusive relationships are somehow to blame for their abuse. Our culture also sends equally powerful messages that women are expected to fill roles in their relationships that keep them dependent on their partners. This combination of messages sets women up to feel ashamed, isolated and stuck. Some may feel that they have no real choices.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
