Many myths surround the issue of violence against women, and the perpetration of these myths — especially those that excuse the perpetrator and blame the victim — reinforces behavior which contributes to sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking.
Separating the myths from the facts is an important first step in acknowledging the problem and working to eliminate it. It is important to stop the stalker as soon as possible.
Intimate partner violence (IPV) in adolescents is an important realm of study as, in addition to the usual negative effects of abuse, this violence occurs at a critical period in the social and mental development of a person.
This is also an important topic from a gender studies perspective as almost 32% of male adolescents engage in some form of violence, whether sexual, physical or emotional, towards their partners while adolescent violence from females is nearly half of that rate.
Fact: People who are abused by their dating or domestic partner do not stay in the relationship because they like being bullied.
The sooner action is taken, be it a police caution, warning or arrest, the greater the chance of stopping the stalking.
Fact: An abusive or violent relationship can happen to anyone in an intimate relationship regardless of marital status.
Estimates of physical and sexual coercion among college students are even higher, ranging from 20% to 30% (Wekerle , 2009).
