To better understand the cause of intimate violence will help to come up will help come up with a better solution on solving this problem. There are various theories that have come up to explain the main causes of domestic violence, some include; learned helplessness theory, Intergenerational Transmission Theory, Social–Psychological Model and the feminist theory. All of these theories have tried to illustrate the causes of domestic violence. In this paper, I will target my writing on the feminist theory where it emphasizes power and gender inequalities in relationships. The theory focuses on how societal messages that makes it alright for a male to use aggression and violence, and the gender roles that dictate how women and men should act in their relationships
The Code articulates standards that the social work profession itself can use to assess whether social workers have engaged in unethical conduct. NASW has formal methods to decide ethics complaints filed against its members. * In subscribing to this Code, social workers are required to cooperate in its implementation, participate in NASW adjudication proceedings, and abide by any NASW disciplinary rulings or sanctions based on it (McGregor, 2018) 7. . What are three practices or behaviors that might violate the Code? Why?
Anderson(1997) believed that both men's socio-demographic status and husbands' comparative resource to their wives would influence men's use of violence. A more detailed explanation would be provided in the description of the theory down below. Heise(1998) integrated the ecological theory with feminist perspective. Heise adopted the ecological framework that encompasses the findings that could possibly result in domestic violence but pointed out gender should be taken into account as well.

Programs such as this not only help girls recover but try to make others more aware of the threatening situations happening all around them. The way the situation is viewed is crucial to how people react to it. When girls are viewed as prostitutes that are bought and sold people have less remorse for them. However, in the article “Changing Perceptions of Sex Trafficking” it’s expressed that, “There’s a real shift in key terms in the articles from framing the issue more and more as sex trafficking” (1). How the issue is viewed has a critical effect on how others will deal with the issue as well as how they will treat those that have been directly affected by the traumatic events.
Offender rehabilitation has mainly revolved around the Risk-Needs-Responsivity (RNR) model which serves as a framework in guiding interventions towards offenders in the past. However, with the emergence of Good Lives Model (GLM) as an alternative model, competing views as to which works better start to arise. In order to discuss which model is better, there is first a need to compare between both approaches towards offender rehabilitation. The principles revolving around RNR model include the risk, needs and responsivity principles. The risk principle matches the level of service and treatment to the offender’s risk to re-offend, whereas the need principle assesses criminogenic needs and target them in treatment.

When it comes to controversial topics the subject of gender roles has created quite a stir. In their articles “Two Ways A Woman Can Get Hurt” by Jean Kilbourne, “Becoming Members of Society: Learning The Social Meanings of Gender” by Aaron H. Devor, and “Bros Before Hos” by Michael Kimmel each source describes in their own ways gender roles. There’s a certain art to persuasion and Kilbourne's article hits the nail right on the head. Her article is the most persuasive because of how well she uses her resources and delivers her argument. These stereotypical expectations for both genders have been reinforced through generation after generation, In fact, “children five to seven years old understand gender as a function of role” Explains Devor
In my rhetorical analysis of the Time’s Up movement, I will explore the nomos built into the heart of the campaign. I will show how the movement uses the cultural values of supporting and respecting women to promote the message that sexual harassment in the workplace
Gender inequality is a social justice issue that is prominent in several societies as it is a direct reflection of the systematic power distribution amongst the two binary genders. This form of inequality is reflected through a set of adverse behaviours projected from one individual to another, known as domestic violence. Individuals perform the identities that is associated with their gender role because it is what is culturally acceptable within their given society. Judith Butler’s theory of ‘Gender as a Performance’ depicts that the practices that individuals repeat and perform assure the elements that an identity is composed of. This theory is an embodiment of domestic violence as it establishes the inequality amongst the different genders, by allowing the male to perform his dominance, causing the female to feel inferior to this.
