This article written about domestic violence as a societal issue (by the one and only, Nicholas Kristof) reminded me of the conclusion to Death by Culture by Naryan – in which she overgeneralizes this issue in America by over generalizing the root cause of it to be gun violence (in order to make her point about “women being burnt to death” / dowry murders in India)
Except here, Nicholas Kristof does this himself:
“Three steps are needed. First, we must end the silence. Second, we must ensure that police departments everywhere take the issue seriously before a victim becomes a corpse. Third, offenders should be required to attend training programs like the one run by Men Stopping Violence.”
This is just one of the many problems with this article..
Ugh, this is infuriating.
