Week 11 Discussion Questions-sorry for the delay!

1. Why is violence against children taken more seriously than violence against women in our society?
2. What are the social implications for why violence against women is somewhat tolerated in our society? Why does domestic violence get overlooked more often than not?
3. Why is it almost always men beating up or abusing women instead of the other way around? Does this have anything to do with biology or is it merely because of the social conceptions of masculinity and dominance?
