Changing Perspective Paper 2 Changing Perspective Paper I have a good example of changing perspectives, in which two people both see a crime committed but they both do not think that it was a crime at all. What they both saw was a man abusing his wife outside their home repeatedly. He screams at her and calls her names, he kicks her, she tries to get away, but her grabs her by the hair and drags her back every time. Should people consider this to be a crime? The first person is a woman; her name is Claudia, she is 35 years old, and she has three children of her own, she has been married for more than ten years. She comes from a strict family that is very religious and never divorces no matter what. She was raised with three sisters and two brothers. Her father had been abusive to her mother but only when it was absolutely necessary. Her upbringing was harsh at times but this is the way that her parents were raised, thus they raised their children in the same manner, never breaking the cycle of violence at all. Claudia’s husband has put his hands on her occasionally but only when she does not do something when he tells her to do it. She lives in fear that she will make a mistake and have to pay for it, in the same manner that her mother did. The only thing that the woman can do is turn away and pretends that she saw nothing at all. She does feel sorrow and empathy for the woman because she was in her place before but she still did nothing to change the situation for the woman. Even though she does feel sorry for the woman
