Why don't victims just "leave"?

  • Fear of reprisals, shame, or humiliation keeps victims trapped in violent homes.

  • Batterers commonly deny responsibility for their behavior by blaming the victim for the abuse.

  • Victims receive strong incentives to stay, such as threats of harm and threats against the victim's children, friends, and family.

  • Victims are urged to responsibility from violence and be blamed.

  • By seeking help from community agencies, victims are too often given answers that encourage them to meet with the aggressor or minimize abuse.

  • The victims are subjected and discouraged by the failed search for help and learn to suffer in silence and isolation.
