Living with violence : A narrative analysis of autobiographies written by women who have lived with a male partner who was violent (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine the experience among women who have been victims for domestic violence in heterosexual relationships. More specifically the purpose of this study was to gain an understanding when it comes to how women manage to live with the violence and also to examine why some women are staying in the relationship despite being exposed to violence. Another purpose was to find out how women experienced support from authorities if they requested such support. The study was based on reading five autobiographies written by women who have been in a relationship with partner who was abusive both physically and mentally. The normalization process and emotions as a theory were used as theoretical perspectives. The results showed that the women of the study tended to get used to the violence over time and that they started to accept it as a part of their relationship. Another result of the study was that the women felt feelings of shame which resulted in the fact that they kept quiet about the violence and therefore stayed in the relationship. Lastly one of the main results of the study showed that women overall did not feel satisfied with the help and support that they gained from authorities.
