One of the major downsides of a bad relationship is depression. Studies have suggested that “falling in love makes adolescents more depressed”, which would be perfectly applicable to Romeo and Juliet’s relationship (Study: Teen Love Hurts p.1). When Romeo was banished, Juliet became very depressed and hid away in her room. Another component of an unhealthy relationship is a pressure to be perfect that primarily affects girls in relationships.
Kilbourne argues how sex in advertising, subconsciously promotes violence against women. With ads about alcohol, skimpy clothing, and even one about an elevator, Kilbourne reveals that these kinds of ads can signify violence, when paid enough attention to. These ads play on the media so often nowadays, that society is numb to them and no longer pays close attention to what the ads are implying. Not only does sex in advertising objectify women, but when a man is objectified, the woman is blamed for not so being innocent, which is what Kilbourne argues as further poor treatment towards women. Sex in advertising seems to allow dominant and forceful men to get away with violating the passive and playful women because the women are teasing.
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. They were seeking protection from their abuser, they were physically abuse, financial abuse, their children taken away from them, sexual abuse, all tactics to control the
The second cue I identified is the Mothers refusal to accept responsibility for her actions in the way she raised and treated Precious. It was clear in the counseling session that the Mother still blames Precious for her significant other not wanting her and eventually leaving her. The animosity, hatred, and disdain towards Precious was evident, when the Mother dropped the baby, and proceeded to attack Precious in the movie. (Daniels, 2009).

Some women may have been coerced or forced to become prostitutes by “pimps or human trafficking.” If the decision to become a prostitute was independent, it may be the result of “poverty or the lack of support, opportunity, or other underlying problems. Past trauma, drug addiction, sexual abuse such as molestation, and other unfortunate, immoral circumstances may contribute in the decision. Anti-prostitution feminists also argue that there are long term effects of prostitution. It can lead to serious, negative, and damaging long term effects on the individual.
Many of the victims are forced with violence or indirectly with psychological blackmail into the sex trade. Human trafficking is the worst form of abuse that can be inflicted on an individual. A trafficked human being suffers from mental, and physical abuse, leaving them with lifelong mental illnesses. Many women dream of a better life and are willing to travel across the globe to better their lives.
It involves coercion, mental abuse and emotional blackmail, and intense social pressure. In the most extreme cases, it may also involve physical violence, abduction, false imprisonment, rape or sexual abuse, and murder.’ (Hossain & Turner, 2000)
Sometime victims of abusive relationships associate the abuse with the cultural and religious abuse and due to that they continue suffering in the relationship and it lead towards creating the victimization of the women against the set procedures (Teixeira, Sou, Sandberg and Johansson,
and probably one of the worst is “You were asking for it” all of this reduces the likelihood that they will speak up. And the ones that do, speak up very rarely get the justice that they deserve. This is a huge problem because along with these overwhelming statistics women are more likely to experience psychological disorders such as Depression and PTSD, which then causes them to drop out of schooling (Streng, Tara). This being the case colleges should offer more methods of help to those that have experience with sexual assault and provide accessible prevention methods or
Whether its intoxication, risqué attire or innocent flirting, women are always blamed for men’s inability to keep it in their pants- just as Janine is blamed for being gang-raped. Society has made women fear things they shouldn’t have to fear because of the expectation that men want to have sex. In a male-controlled society penetration becomes the norm. Excuses are made for the perpetrator and the victim is shamed. Sexual assault is perceived as NORMAL- to the extent where public figures defend it.
Some risk factors for drug abuse found in sex offenders include; brain damage, HIV, AIDS, and other sexual transmitted diseases, lung disease and cancer. The use of a substance can have a great impact on the offender. The offender can develop many problems with substance abuse and that could greatly affect their self mentally and physically. Substance abuse can greatly affect the offender’s family.
In the past years, women are often suffering from the inequality between them and men. Dehumanization, objectification and violence are different words that are closely related. Most of the the time, women are the victims of these words. That is caused by specific advertisements that reinforce these actions. In the documentary Killing Us Softly, Jean Kilbourne talks about how women are victims of inequality.
Toxic Masculinity is the root of men’s oppression, and it requires our attention to be adequately addressed. This is because in the United States we teach boys that demeaning women make them more valuable to society. The idea is that women are only around to give men pleasure and to be seen as objects. In the documentary, we are also told by Joe Ehrmann that in addition to demeaning women we are taught that we need to strive for money and positions of power to obtain money with the help of media and film perpetuating the idea. He also added that if that we look at what society is telling boys, they will lose what is truly important in life.
