Battered women syndrome theory is now widely seen as open to misuse.

Strategic Logic That Drives Terrorist Violence: Finding Logic in the Illogical Carlos Carlos Arizona State University CRJ 419: Domestic Terrorism Dr. Garth den Heyer February 26, 2023 Abstract To hear terrorism being linked with a word such as logic can sound strange, especially when considering that the use of fear makes the action sound more like it’s based off emotion rather than logic. However, just as terrorism can be seen from different points of views and can be interpreted differently by the involved parties, so too can logic be applied in a manner that works when talking about something generally based off emotion. That isn’t to say that actions coming from emotions can all be described as logical, merely that logic

The organization WHO explained that intimate partner violence is behavior, includes physical aggression, sexual coercion, and psychological abuse and controlling behaviors, that causes physical, sexual or psychological harm by partner or ex-partner. Socially shared norms about gender relations and the acceptance of violence play important roles in determining if behavior is considered partner aggression. Through the ‘ecological framework’ by Heise in 1998, the interplay relationships of personal, situation and sociocultural factors of intimate partner violence are best explained. Heise tries to explain men’s violence against women by specifying risk factors at four levels which includes society, community, relationship and individual perpetrator.
With the male figure typically holding the most power within the family unit, it is said that this power difference can sometimes lead to issues of domestic violence and abuse (Chibucos, Leite & Weis, 2005).

Interventions and assessments do not always persuade victims who are emotionally involved. This study did not talk about the emotional connection these women have with their abusers. This may be due to it being socially acceptable or that they feel they will not be loved by anyone else so they let it happen. In past articles, we have discussed how socioeconomic status and educational properties play a role in how a person may carry out their life.
The Good and the Bad Victims of domestic violence are not at fault for the abuse that is inflicted upon them. A lot of people ask why the victim stayed in the first place, but in some cases the answer is not always so simple. According to Why Do Abuse Victims Stay, “We often put ourselves in the place of the victims and imagine ourselves leaving at the first signs of abuse. But breaking free of abuse is not simply a matter of walking out the door. Leaving is a process.”

Domestic violence is a representation of Judith Butler’s ‘Gender as a Performance’ theory because it embodies the structured power relation amongst genders and how this power influences both individuals involved. The act of domestic violence in heterosexual relationships adversely enforces the identities in which males and females categorize themselves into, based on their gender performance.
