Female Suicide and Wife Abuse: A Cross-Cultural Perspective.
Counts, Dorothy Ayers
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v17 n3 p194-204 Fall 1987
Research suggests that wife abuse may be significant precipitant of female suicide. Case studies and data from several societies suggest that if a woman's support group does not defend her when she is victimized, suicide may be form of revenge. Research focused on relationship between domestic violence and female suicide should be priority for anthropologists. (Author/NB)
