Leslie Morgan Steiner: Why domestic violence victims don't leave

Leslie Morgan Steiner was in "crazy love" -- that is, madly in love with a man who routinely abused her and threatened her life. Steiner tells the dark story...
  
Diksha Tandon's insight:

This story thoroughly describes the struggles of spousal abuse.Leslie Morgan Steiner answers the question everyone asks. Why doesn't the person getting abused leave the marriage? 

 

Steiner explains how the abuse started with one slap. She didn't think much of it, and forgave her partner assuming he would never do it again. That was her very first mistake. Her husband soon took advantage of her naive thinking and hit her once again. This began to turn into an abusive relationship. Leslie Morgan Steiner was thrown out of cars and guns were pointed towards her head. This had become her reality. Her normal. Steiner explained that her innonce played a huge role, she was 22 at the time ( she states a fact saying women aged 16 to 24 are more likely to be involved in an abusive relationship) . All  Steiner ever wanted was someone to love her unconditionally, she looked past the abuse because she wanted love. Leslie was blinded by love to the point where she ignored how her partner was treating her. But soon the beatings got worse every single day, her partner took advantage of her in every way possible. Steiner had suffered a lot but she was slowly crumbling. Reaching her breaking point, Leslie Steiner finally reached out for help. She told everyone and anyone that would listen and she was set free from the burden. The abuse. The pain. The sufffering. Leslie Morgan Steiner stood up for herself and now she is helping other women do the same by sharing her touching story of how she survived her abusive relationship.

Anti-spousal Abuse Ad from 1990s (kid on stairs) - YouTube

I used to see this ad when I was a kid... It's pretty hilarious to me, not because abuse is funny, but simply because I find the abusive treatment of one ind...

  

  
Diksha Tandon's insight:

Children have to sit by and watch, what's your excuse?

Hotline: There's NO excuse for domestic violence. 1-800 END ABUSE

This short advertisement represents how kids are emotionally and mentally scarred by watching spousal abuse. The child may learn from their parents relationship and could become an abuser or allow their partner to abuse them because they think it's right due to witnessing a abusive relationship

Women and domestic abuse - Pakistan Today | Social Justice- Spousal Abuse | Scoop.it
Women and domestic abuse
Pakistan Today
In Pakistan, domestic violence is considered a private matter, as it occurs in the family, and therefore not an appropriate focus for assessment or intervention.

  

  
Diksha Tandon's insight:

Article is about Pakistan- third world countries.

Spousal Abuse exists everywhere. In our neighborhood, in our families, maybe even in your own home. In Canada we have many laws against it but what about the third world countries like Pakistan? In the article it states that spousal abuse (usually the abusers are men because in Pakistan, men have more dominance) is considered a private matter and shouldn't be discussed. The artical also explains how woman aren't allowed to discuss their family matters. This is so because many people in third world countries believe that a women are the 'property' of men. People belive that the man has every right to hit his partner. This often occurs in third world countries but happens here as well.

Diksha Tandon's insight:

when thinking about spousal abuse many people including myself have a tendency to think the abuse is coming from the male in the relationship. But we are sadly mistaken, 40% of men suffer from spousal abuse. When a man is abusing a woman, many people come to her rescue, but when the roles are reversed no one helps. Instead people laugh and take pictures. This is our arrogance spousal abuse can be done by both the male and female in the relationship.

Diksha Tandon's insight:

add your insight...This video is very useful. It symbolizes that in an abusive relationship, it is not only the couple being affected. This video represents that children if involved are witnessing the spousal abuse and they too are being affected. By witnessing an abusive relationship of their authoritative figure they may think it's right, and follow in their footsteps

Spousal abuse advertisement. This ad is very useful because it is not only raising awareness about Spousal Abuse but it is also reaching out to women who are being assaulted. This helpline is helping women get out of an abusive relationship.

  Where could we post this ad to raise awareness?

We could post this ad wear it is most likely for women to visit like the grocery store, or maybe a bus stop. We could also ask the government for  permission to have boards advertising womens helpline.

What would you do - Domestic violence - Boyfriend abusing his girlfriend in public

LOVE YOU ALL !! SUBSCRIBE !! and PLEASE check out my latest videos!!

  

  
Diksha Tandon's insight:

What would you do when you saw someone being abuse by their boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife? Would you sit back and watch or take a stand. The right thing to do is take a stand, because spousal abuse as shown in the video can lead to death. This video is useful because it shows how people are brave and are able to step in when spousal abuse is occurring but it also shows how arrogant people are when they don't step in. In order for people to step in we should educate so next time all the people in this video will stand up for the person being abused

This PSA represents how women continuously endure spousal abuse and it is wrong to get hit by anybody no matter what relationship you share. It is time to stand tall and speak up against spousal abuse. As said in the video when will we say cut?!
