How is violence percieved? How society and the legal system perceive violence is the key issue in this essay. In court there are different people that all have their own view of how they percieved the violence presentad in the case. The meaning of the used violence and the impact on the target is experienced differently depending on wich role each person take in the violence. Since the experience can be so different and therefore the way you percieve the occurred violence different, it is a difficult task for the court to understand the violence as objectively and as accurate as possible.
The way you percieve violence has in many studies shown to differ between sexes. A well established image of the weaker woman who is defenseless to the stronger man also tends to taint our image of how we percieve a violent situation. Whether it is a man who uses violence against a woman, a woman who uses violence against a man or the same sex using violence on one another, we tend to be tainted of our perception of the sex. This essay takes a closer look on how court and the society percieve violence and how similar their view on violoence is. In this essay the conclusion is that there are some differences in how violence is viewed upon but mostly a lot of similarities. (Less)
