I'm trying to find research as to why conservative states have a higher rate of violence against women, than liberal states. Not finding anything yet. It would definitely make for a good research project for someone in grad school, though.

Is Alaska the highest because of the abuse of Native American women?

I'm not sure. I'd have to do some more digging on that. I believe I read once that alcoholism is high in Alaska. (Not a lot to do there in the winter months.) And there is a high coorelation between alcoholism and domestic violence.

Is there a corroliation (negative or positive) between levels of religiosity and domestic violence?

Are those states generally more or less religious?

Red states tend to have higher levels of religion interactions, but I have not been able to find any research that shows a correlation with that either. In fact, I'm not finding any research to show why violence against women seem to be higher in red states than blue. But it is obvious, looking at the stats, that red states have more violence against women, and are prediominantly the top states in those statistics that track state by state.

Generally speaking, consevatism is about maintaining “old values” so a more patriacal society is preferred. That means women are treated with less reverence than men. Religion being an old value amplifies that with doctrine.

It’s not surprising that communities with a more liberal bent would be statistically less likely to think it’s ok to beat women.

Gracie, I found this article about Alaska and the crimes against women:

Survey finds violence against women widespread in Western Alaska region

At least 51 percent of women in the Nome census area have experienced physical abuse at the hands of an intimate partner, sexual violence, or both, according to a new study.

The numbers mirror a grim pattern of extreme rates of violence against women statewide.

The results of the "Alaska Victimization Survey: Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence in the Nome Census Area," authored by the University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center and the state Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, were released in Nome Feb. 11.

A statewide survey released in 2010 found that out of every 100 adult women in the state, 59 had experienced intimate partner violence, sexual violence or both.

Previous surveys by the same authors examining other Alaska regions have revealed similarly staggering rates, with a majority of women reporting at least one case of sexual violence or violence by an intimate partner, or both, in their lifetimes in areas that include Bristol Bay (52 percent), Anchorage (51 percent)the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta (51 percent) and Juneau (55 percent).

The regional survey for Nome was conducted in the spring and summer of 2014.

Randomly selected adult women in the area were surveyed by phone, on both landlines and cellphones. Communities in the census area include Nome, Shishmaref, Wales, Diomede, Gambell, Savoonga, Stebbins, St. Michael, Unalakleet, Shaktoolik, Elim, Koyuk, Golovin, White Mountain, Brevig Mission, Teller and Port Clarence.

From the article, it sounds like it's not just crimes against Native American women, but all women in the state.

This is crazy. I guess the remoteness doesn't help.

You have a point about the "old values", and even the partiarchal societies, but I would hope (obviously false hope) that as our society as advanced, that some of those values would have advanced with them.

  • 1 in 7 women and 1 in 18 men have been stalked by an intimate partner during their lifetime to the point in which they felt very fearful or believed that they or someone close to them would be harmed or killed.1
  • On a typical day, there are more than 20,000 phone calls placed to domestic violence hotlines nationwide.9
  • The presence of a gun in a domestic violence situation increases the risk of homicide by 500%.10

On October 18th, Safe Homes Rape Crisis Coalition here in my hometown will be hosting an open mic night for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and childhood sexual abuse. The event will provide a platform for survivors to speak out using music, song, poetry, or spoken word. I've decided that I'm going to sign up to speak that night.

Thanks, Penny. I've written something to present that night and have called it "She". I read it to my ex-mother-in-law last night and she was crying and couldn't speak after I finished reading it. (She's a beautiful soul and I adore her. I call her my "Forever Mom".) I'm nervous about it. Speaking about it on an anonymous message forum, talking with a friend one on one, is a lot different than getting in front of a room full of strangers, having a spotlight on me, and speaking into a mic about it. I'm just hoping I can do it. My ex-husband told me that it takes a tremendous amount of courage, that he's really proud of me, and that I have really come a long way with no one to credit but myself. I appreciated his vote of confidence, too. He's going to keep the kids for me that night because I don't know what kind of shape I will be in after that. I took the 19th off from work, too.

I can't say an awful lot about the subject of this thread because what do I as a European know about domestic violence in America? Nothing! And I don't know much about speaking in public either. So you might ask yourself, why did I bother replying to your post? To wish you all the best!!!!!
(Will you let us know how it turned out?)
I may disagree with everything you say, but I will defend your right to say it.
