In magazine advertisements, it has been tested that sexual objectification occurs more frequently for women than for men and that women are 3 times more likely to be dressed in a sexually provocative manner.

Even so, the act is still a common occurrence and affects majority of women. According to Izadi, there is a percentage of more than 31% of women that face domestic violence in the United States by the hands of their partner. Although, domestic violence still occurs throughout the country; the abuse is tremendously regarded in a different way other cultures do. While, other countries of Asian and Hispanic culture regard domestic violence as normal and justifiable; American culture deems the action of violence as intolerable and are constantly finding ways to decrease the high percentage of violence. In 1994, the Violence Against Women Act was passed by Congress in recognition of the abuse women experience.

Domestic Violence against women can be called domestic abuse, spousal abuse, battering and family violence, furthermore it is a serious concern because not only is it a violent act committed against women, it also violates their human rights.

Crimes are an unlawful act that can be punishable government officials or authority. But what kind of crimes do women even commit ? women are usually seen to commit larceny , theft , fraud , and drug possession. But when it comes to men we see worse. We imagine rape , murder and worse .
Social inequality is linked to gender and race or ethnicity and plays another major role in structural violence. In his article, Paul Farmer makes it evident that Acephie and Chouchou died in different ways precisely because of their gender. Paul Farmer states, “Gender inequality also helps to explain why the suffering of Acephie is much more commonplace than that of Chouchou” (21). In this statement, Paul Farmer is trying to convey that due to sexism, events such as what happened to Acephie happen more frequently as women are the main victims of domestic violence and rape.

Domestic violence is the leading cause of female injuries across the globe. Until recently, in many countries husbands used to legally “own” their wives’ bodies (Arthur 147). Domestic abuse is defined by Parmar as any incident of threatening behavior between adults who are or have been partners or families, regardless of gender or sexuality (674). The most common reason for domestic violence is partners wanting to retain dominance when they lack other resources, such as education and job prestige (Arthur 148). Although anyone can be affected by domestic violence, poor families are most likely to be affected (Carter 4).
Introduction According to Dowden & Andrews (1999), since 2010, there has been a growing concern over the increasing rate of incarceration for women: an alarming rate of 3.4 percent annually. Some experts like Kruttschnitt (2010) explain that the growth of incarcerated women population is due mainly to two major factors; one contributor to this phenomenon is the war on drugs. As politicians are passing more aggressive anti-drug policies and as police are cracking down on drug offenders, increasing amounts of women are being caught with illegal substances. The second reason is the the switch from indeterminate sentencing to determinate sentencing which is forcing women to stay in prison for longer than is necessary.
What main points were made in the study/research concerning social control? One of the main points that are made in the introduction show that women are more likely to be punished for things that violate the traditional gender role. Women are more likely than men to be punished for things like status offenses according to the text which include things such as liquor law violations, curfew violations, etc. The reading always breaks into how the women’s race can factor into sentencing. One of the shocking fact that the study shows is that black women are more likely to receive harsher sentencing than white women would receive.

Even though there is more legal protection in America against rape than in others in which, for example, marital rape is not criminalized, the attitude towards rape victims shows that the underlying values and beliefs are sexist. This patriarchal society tends to blame the victim. Both, men and women, assume that if a woman was raped it was because she was dressed “provocative”, she was drunk, she was alone at night or she was “promiscuous”, among many other sexist misconceptions. We have to understand that when a woman is raped she is only the victim of it and the rapist is the only responsible for that despicable act: she was outraged against her will. The main problem here is that our society teaches women to avoid getting raped instead of teaching men not to
