The purpose of this essay is to investigate how violent experiences have affected and still
affects the life of the informants. Further, the overall reason is to show that it is important for
these children to have the opportunity to work through their experiences.
The big questions in the essay are how adult life and childhood and teenage life of
interviewees have been affected. Focus is on how the informants handle conflicts,
identification and their relations with men.
The conclusions drawn in the essay is that the women are strongly affected by their
experiences. They are afraid of conflicts or they themselves use physical abuse. They have
different strategies to avoid violence in their everyday life. (Less)
