Sociology Dobash & DobashWatch
I have to finish up some work for last years sociology AS level and i have not got the study on Dobash & Dobash - domestic violece. I was wondering if anyone could summerise the study for me on here.
Dobash & Dobash looked at police records in Scotland and found examples of wives being slapped, raped and killed by their husbands.
They state that...
- violent incidents could be set off by what a husband sees as a challenge to authority.
-marriage legitimises un-equal power as the wife becomes dependant.
I hope this helps you. I know it's not much, but still, it could come in useful.
