Husbands Who Yell at Their Wives Face up to 14 Years in Prison Under New Law

Husbands Who Yell at Their Wives Face up to 14 Years in Prison Under New Law | Women deserve the same rights as men! | Scoop.it
The new law will be introduced as a series of amendments to the Serious Crime Bill, and will alter the legal definition of domestic and spousal abuse in England

Adrita Abbas's insight:

I don't completely think this is right. There is such thing as freedom of speech, though i think is the conversation gets heated and there is violence involved, than there is a reason to go to prison. Being arrested for talking or yelling isn't logical, we all have rights. Also its a little unfair that there is no forming law about the wife being arrested for doing something. The law is flawed and should not be official because it is unfair. Spousal abuse is vice versa on both the man and woman.

This article speaks about how our society is moving forward with applying consequences with spousal abuse. In England now they have a law to acknowledge the psychological part of the abuse. It says in the article that "Men who exercise “coercive control” over their partners by restricting their personal or financial freedom, or through overt criticism could face up to 14 years in jail". Having this law helps the other spouse have more freedom as well as a better emotional state. The new law will also alter the definition of domestic violence, adding psychological abuse along with physical abuse.

"I don't know what's worse - the pain or the shame," he explained.
Adrita Abbas's insight:

This is really sad. A marriage should not contain domestic violence. A marriage should be a connection between a husband and wife in which they could trust each other. Whether its the man abusing a women or vice versa, its wrong.

Adrita Abbas's insight:

As a human i think everybody deserves equal rights. As a women i think we should be treated the same as men. We deserve the same rights as men, not just more rights. We should be able to work the same job as men and earn the same amount of earning. It is disgusting to hear topics in which a man takes advantage of a women. Although don't get me wrong, violence in general is disgusting. We have along way since the time when women where considered useless and couldn't fight back, though its not completely gone and i don't bet on that, but the part where men think its right to hit a women should be gone.

The genius of our very own Lundy Bancroft. This book is a " must read" for all parents and professionals dealing with DV. along with their supporters. Overview

In this groundbreaking book, a leading expert on domestic abuse and its effects turns his unique perspective on the littlest victims of spousal abuse-the children.

More than two-thirds of abused women have children, and the overwhelming majority of those children witness one or more incidents of violence. And that number would be even greater if we include children who have watched their mothers be verbally abused and intimidated. Studies have shown that children's exposure to domestic abuse is linked to virtually every category of emotional and behavioral problems.

When Dad Hurts Mom offers comfort, understanding, and a concrete plan of action to any woman concerned about the distress being caused to her children by her angry, controlling, or abusive partner. Written for mothers, this book aims to enlighten women about the effects of abuse on children, how an abusive partner distorts familial relationships, and what can be done about it.

Abused mothers are desperately seeking guidance on how to help their children heal from the abuse they witness. This is the first book to provide these women with the insight, support, and, most important, the solutions they need.

Women tell Dr. Drew why they killed their partner

Women tell Dr. Drew why they killed their partner | Women deserve the same rights as men! | Scoop.it
On Tuesday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew talked to two women who spent decades in prison for killing men who allegedly abused them.

Adrita Abbas's insight:

Here is an example where the man is targeted in a marriage. Spousal abuse includes both sex as victims. A lot of us are still brainwashed that women are always targeted. Yes its more common to have a women abused, but there are men may be a target for domestic violence. It really doesn't make sense that these women can escape being put in jail. They did a crime and should take the consequences.

What Are The Best & Worst Places To Be A Woman? - YouTube

Each year, the World Economic Forum examines gender equality all over the world. This video is based on the 2013 results. Share on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/...
Adrita Abbas's insight:

This video highlights a few worst and best  places to be a women. Women are discriminated and looked as useless people who produce

children and cook all day. Society has come along since that though there are still places where women are treated unfairly. Yes, United States is a first world country though their rights are very biased. Did you know that women earn 22% less then men in the states? But that's in the U.S, what about places like Yemen? Did you know ,education for girls in Yemen remains almost impossible?, With parents forcing girls as young as seven to get married, girls are trapped. Yemen is ranked the third-worst  (in educational attainment) country for women and fifth-worst in economic participation. As a "human", does that make you feel happy? Nobody should be treated differently (negative) for a factor of their body that they can't change. As a sister of all the women who are discriminated, i say this should change. We are all equal and should be treated that way!
