Some of the questions that were asked were really interesting. I started to analyze who was stepping forward to the questions with regard to the gender and ethnic component. One of the questions asked you to step forward if you know of anyone who has been in a physically abusive relationship. All the people that steeped forward were either African-American or Hispanic from the Dominican Republic or Puerto Rico. No person that considers themselves white steeped forward. I found that really interesting. Most of the people who stepped forward for the abusive questions were the minorities. In this class a lot more people gave their point of views and the hot topics were really a learning experience for me. I always assumed that a woman could leave an abusive relationship but I found out that it is not always possible to do so. It was shocking to hear the statistic that ¾ or 75% of women that leave abusive relationships are continually stalked by their former partner and killed. I feel that the emotions that were expressed in the personal experience stories helped to keep the dialogue going and learn new perspectives and point of views. I had a couple of discussions with my friends outside of the classroom and it was really funny to hear what they had to say about the hot topics we discussed in class. A lot of them were naïve and held some really strong biased feelings. One of my friends had said that men should have control over all aspects of the relationship and that the woman is there to listen and follow directions. I didn’t agree with his statement at all.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
