DV and the TV
I have worked with domestic violence for the past year, making house calls, going to hospitals at 3 am, sitting through trial after trial. If there is one thing I can't understand, it is the way the media portrays domestic violence. They always show the most extreme violence, and victimize the survivor. Leaving many to assume that they are not in a dv relationship. I am writing one of my final papers on this for Sex Panics in the US and I can not wait to post what I discover.
