PU Gender Diversity and Violence Study of Family & Feminist Framework Discussion

I’m working on a sociology discussion question and need an explanation to help me study.


In this unit, we will focus on the causes and consequences of intimate partner violence. Our study of violence in families will include defining what intimate partner violence is, who the abusers are, types of abuse, the cycle of violence, why women stay, child abuse, and elder abuse. The feminist theory and its application to the family will also be examined.


Upon completion of this module, the student will be able to:

  1. Evaluate the causes and consequences of intimate partner violence (CLO5)
  2. Apply the feminist theory to family (CLO1)
  3. Apply knowledge to everyday lives and their own lives (CLO6)
