I don’t think that domestic violence is a big issue women still face more so than the past because of how acceptable divorce is now a days. I feel like back then women kept quiet when things in their relationships went wrong. In particular, back then it wasn’t socially acceptable to get a divorce, usually when something went wrong the male and female would try to work things out. So in the past when a women was a victim of domestic violence she basically had to deal with it. Now, many people get divorced so it is easier to avoid this problem as soon as possible. To add, with social media people are more aware of it and any women can find someone to talk to about how to deal with the problem.
I feel like some areas in the world face this issue in greater numbers because America is a step ahead of many other countries.
