being drunk, just by a woman hitting a man the wrong way by accident, can even happen if on drugs. The ways that women get hurt are by getting punched or slapped in the face, choked out, thrown against the wall, even getting raped. “The effects of violence can be devastating to a woman's reproductive health as well as to other aspects of her physical and mental well-being. In addition to causing injury, violence increases women's long-term risk of a number of other health problems, including chronic pain , physical disability , drug and alcohol abuse, and depression .”

Violence Against Women 3 I am a victim of violence against women. I have been brutally hurt by a man a couple times in my life. I always wondered, “Why is this man that says I love you hurting me?” Now this man has hurt me more than once. I just kept taking the violence over and over. Then I finally came to my senses and said, “No woman deserves this, I need to stand up for myself.” Over the course of life, I have sat and thought, “Why does any man put they hands on a woman? Men are born from woman, so why want to hurt a woman?” Then I looked at reasons why men do this and I found out that, “Men are more likely to perpetrate violence if they have low education, a history of child maltreatment, exposure to domestic violence against their mothers, harmful use of alcohol, unequal gender norms including attitudes accepting of violence, and a sense of entitlement over women.” Does this still give men a right to hurt a woman over and over or hurt more than one woman over and over?

    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.
