Like our previous series on child abuse, female abuse runs rampant all over the world.


Today's topic is about abused women. What can we do about it and most importantly how can we prevent it. The series will end with a case study of a battered Montreal women and the role her friends played in her support.

Continuing with the mental health series on female domestic abuse

Continuing with the mental health series on female domestic abuse Montreal women and women from all over the world can benefit from knowing:

The more obvious signs of abuse

Striking or hitting - If he hits you once chances are he will hit you again.

Believing him when he says, "I love you, I am sorry and I won't ever do it again." This is the trap that abused women fall into. They do believe him and the result is that most of these men do do it again.

Now let's look at the words "I love you"

How can anyone including the abused female rationalize I love you with beating, hitting, and constantly being hurt 24 hours a day? Even the occasional hit is still not justified. Where does love and hurt compliment each other?

The answer is, it does not. To hurt someone is a cruel act and is no way associated with love. Hitting people to get them to do your bidding is simply an act of control. It is also an act of punishment for crimes the abused one has not committed.

Being punished for crimes never committed

Being punished for crimes never committed

Abused women have to question these alleged crimes for themselves. Is looking at the person you are talking to a crime?

Many women are punished by their spouses or partners for simply speaking to someone in public or glancing up at a strangers as they pass the dinner table at a restaurant where the abused and the abuser are seated.

How about being accused of sleeping around when the poor woman is afraid to even look at another man?

Is burning the toast a crime?

If a woman doesn't jump up fast enough to do his bidding is that a crime? Think about it; Does a woman need to be beaten because she did not come to him the exact moment she was called?
