Sanctioned: many traditional laws and religions, until recently, permitted or encouraged men to beat their wives (the reverse has not been true); Socialized behaviour: men learn to be violent toward women from their families and their fathers, and other male role models, especially those on television, in the movies, and in magazines; Systems failure: men often keep abusing because no oneâ€”not their families, not their friends, not the neighbours, not the police, not the media, the workplace, the church or the courtsâ€”no one effectively intervenes; Strategic: batterers inflict the greatest violence and the greatest damage when women try to leave. The strategy of abuse is to keep the woman from escaping; Successful: the man gets away with it, and gets his way; blamed on Substance abuse

Violence teaches violence. Men who abuse women were usually abused as children. Or witnessed the abuse of others. They're taught if you don't like something, hit. If someone doesn't do what they're told, hit. If they do something wrong and are trying to teach you it's wrong, hit. They're never taught respect or love without fear. So they do what they know. Raise your children without fear and violence and the cycle will end.
