Okay, lady, so why did you allow this guy to attack you and steal your car??

Here’s a neat article from a Connecticut writer:

“Why does she stay with him? Why does she let him treat her that way? Why does she put up with it? These are the questions all too often asked of women who are in abusive relationships. But the question we really should be asking is: Why does he treat her this way? No one would ever ask why she allows herself to be run over or have her car stolen. That’s because domestic violence is still too often treated differently than other crimes....A victim will not call for help if we continue to blame her, or question her motivations.”
