Rape is a horrible and traumatic event that brings great suffering to the raped women. The baby from that incident can act as a constant reminder of the trauma. Consequently, according to soc.ucsb.edu, the child caused by rape face a higher risk of emotional wound caused by abandonment, neglect or even abuse from the mother. The mother might feel strong hatred towards the rapist and that strong feeling could transfer to the child. Even though, people claim that the child is innocent and has done nothing wrong, but emotions are a strong thing.

I really enjoyed every bit of the experience with the ladies and their beautiful children. The Hope House is the epitome of compassion and support for these women and has a wonderful program for addiction and substance abuse recovery. I felt as if the women within that community were like family and really were getting better and doing better for themselves and their children. Without the Hope House, they would not have as many opportunities or advantages. It felt really good to be apart of something that was bigger than myself and I will definitely be going back to volunteer there in the
Domestic Violence in the Native American Culture When mentioning the term domestic violence, physical violence usually comes to mind for many people, including things such as a broken nose or a black eye. While these things are frightening and true forms of abuse, there is far more to domestic violence than what meets the eye. Domestic violence can present its self in several other forms including emotional, verbal, and even sexual abuse. 1Domestic violence can be a critical issue that has a negative impact on four out of five Native American women and men in the United States in their lifetime according to indianlaw.org ( Walker 1). Being a Native American woman who has observed domestic violence as a child and became a victim as a wife, later on, I feel that it has unfortunately given me a deeper perspective of what domestic violence victims endure.
Glady’s Heavenfire Case Battered Woman Syndrome has provided women who have been abused at the hands of their partners recognition in the criminal justice system and is allowing women to tell their stories.

Some examples of an unwanted child may be among teen moms, single moms, and rape cases which may increase crime rate if these women were forced to have children and failed to give them a superb upbringing. High incarceration rate is used by Levitt and Dubner as one of the background reasons why crime has dropped since the 90’s (the background with abortion being their main reason). According to Levitt and Dubner, “Harsh prison terms have been shown to act as both deterrent (for the would-be criminal on the street) and prophylactic (for the would-be criminal who is already locked up).” (123) They use several pieces of evidence for this showing definite crime drop when more people were put behind bars; however, a lot of evidence used with this theory is conceded by the complete opposite idea. Levitt and Dubner used the study “On Behalf of a Moratorium on Prison Construction” (123) to counter and, in the end, strengthen their theory of incarceration rates. This literature review will answer the following question: Do high incarceration rates in fact deter criminals from commiting crimes and, if there is a link, how big of an impact do they
We need to find ways to deter these violent offenders from assaulting these women and just feeling as if they can get away with it. As we talked about earlier with the courts it is a must that we increase the certainty of the punishment. However, if the offender knows that they will be punished assaulting a female they will think twice about it before doing it. In addition, this could also help cut down the number of physical assaults committed on women per year by their intimate partners. Finally, the last of the three major challenges that the criminal justice system may face in the future is youth in the criminal justice system.
I commend the movie for effectively showing how a person with autism or disability like Temple Grandin could overcome her limitations and eventually become successful. The movie clearly emphasized that the support, help, understanding, respect and acceptance of people are some of the vital factors that influence the persons with autism to be optimistic in order to have a positive outlook in life. This was clearly depicted through the use of the characters of Temple’s mother and Dr. Carlock. In the film, Temple’s mother, Eustacia, is portrayed as a determined mother who made selfless sacrifices in order for Temple to have a “normal” life. She made Temple realized that she deserved that normal life despite her disability.
A Comparison of Othello, “A Pair of Tickets” and “For My Daughter” Emotional abuse is an often-misunderstood form of trauma. It is also called psychological or mental damage, and it is aiming to control, belittle, isolate, and shame other people into subservience. The female characters in Shakespeare Othello, Amy Tan’s “A Pair of Tickets” and Weldon Kees’s “For My Daughter” all must learn how to overcome emotional abuse. Shakespeare emphases Othello’s as the abusive husband, while “A Pair of Tickets” It was the mother of Jing-Mei that embarrasses her and Kees’s is the father that denied his daughter. Whereas Othello, “A Pair of Tickets,” and “For My Daughter have significant differences all female characters Illustrates some emotional
These assaults often start small, a shove or grabbing your wrist, but over time it will become worst. Most likely with other abusive behaviors, like emotional and verbal abuse Psychological, emotional, and mental abuse which are linked together, the abuser uses emotional abuse to wither away their partners self-esteem and reduce their confidence to increase their reliant on the abuser. Tactics such as criticism, intimidation, isolating them from their family and friends to gain control over them(Lwa,2018). The last country, I chose is Saudi Arabia. Women were the victims in 45 % of domestic violence cases filed in the last year with the Ministry of Justice.
