Leave or Stay? Battered Women's Decision after Intimate Partner Violence
Kim, Jinseok; Gray, Karen A.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v23 n10 p1465-1482 2008
Battered women's reasons for staying with or leaving their male partners are varied and complex. Using data from the Domestic Violence Experience in Omaha, Nebraska, a discrete-time hazard model was employed to examine a woman's decision based on four factors: financial independence, witness of parental violence, psychological factors, and the police response to the domestic violence call. Findings regarding the first three factors are consistent with previous findings. However, a negative police response did not deter a woman from leaving, which is a different finding from previous studies. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
