Women “ask” to be raped by the way they dress 2. Women like to be raped Assault Myths: 1. battered women must have angered their male partner 2. if women don’t leave their abuser, the situation cant be that bad Cops commonly respond to abuse in households, as a result they can be become desensitized Tholson: thinks that the victimization of women by men is for no different reason for the victimization of men by men (more likely to get involved in risky behavior, socialization, etc.) Stalking: harassing or intimidating other individuals (focusing on women), terrorizing somebody - Been around for a long time - More attention paid to it in the past 30 years - Cyber stalking (online), the access you have to people online is huge Can men be battered? - Less likely to occur (in both NCVS and UCR) How to reduce violence? - Reduce gender role disparity - Get rid of patriarchy –through socialization and introduction of values - Open up more crisis and battered women shelters (help to save lives and provide more resources) Batterers in particular: - What does arresting help? - Both positive and negative consequences - Threatening people with arrest particularly in these situations aren’t that useful - Not good correlations between threat of arrest for any type of crime - Things that happen in private doesn’t make people think that they will be caught for it Intimate Terrorism: an individual is extremely violent or controlling Situational Couple Violence: both partners commit relatively minor violence and neither partner is controlling
