Abuse: Abusive men batter, injure, and even kill women. Physical abuse of females by males is well-documented.

Abuse

Physical Abuse of Women by Men.

Joy Stevens

Why are married and single women battered, injured, and even killed by their abusive mates and boyfriends each year?

Women and Abuse:

Verbal abuse escalates and often turns into physical abuse. And everyone knows physical abuse escalates.

Physical abuse of women in domestic violence is well-documented. Health care and law enforcement professionals are trained to look for abuse of women.

In addition, shelters, counseling, and other help is readily available for the asking.

Verbal abuse escalates and turns into physical abuse over time. Everyone knows physical abuse escalates.

Yet married and single women are battered, injured, and even killed by their mates and boyfriends each year.

Why?

Low self-esteem, denial, a feeling that "things will get better," fear for her children, etc. are the reasons women stay in abusive relationships.

Mark Sandel, Co-Director of the batterer-intervention program at The Family Place in Dallas, Texas, US, had this to say about male abusers, "About the only common thread we've found is they are charming. I can see how their wives would fall in love with them."

Even pregnant women are abused. In April of 1997 experts with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists told doctors that up to one-quarter of pregnant women are physically abused. They also said the abuse harms not only the women but often the babies as well.
