    • I think that it is extremely important to think of how this issue has changed overtime. Domestic abuse used to be one of the biggest issues by far, just by sheer volume. It was common for a man to come home and beat their wives, and now it is much less so. This is not saying that it is not an issue, I am just saying that it has gotten better over time and that, to some degree, the issue has gotten better. I think that you should bring up the drop in domestic abuse that happened after the introduction of no-fault divorce and how people feel as though they must stay together, even if they hate their partner. Why I bring this up is that you need to bring up the history around domestic abuse to help explain that it is still a problem. Another thing that I think you could bring up is the whole situation around Chris Brown. This situation has a lot of information around it that wasn’t focused upon and I think that it says a lot that Chris Brown has just generally been forgiven for all the terrible things he has done against his partners.

  • Thank you for reading my blog. The part of your comment that stood out to me was when you said that my blog could motivated women to speak out about their stories because this is the main reason I wrote my blog about this. A question I have for you is do you think my blog would help people speak out.Look forward to hearing back!

        Dear Khalid,
        To start begin I like how you started off with a story about yourself and then bring in your claim. I like how you added your question and then there answer to show what they are answering. The only you need is a conclusion to make it all come together.

      • Dear Kalani,
        How I feel about your topic is it is very powerful and something that isn’t recognized as much as it should be. Some advice I would like to give you is when you but evidence don’t forget to give some context about it and where it came from. Also, don’t forget to give powerful reasoning on why that piece of evidence conne…Read More
