Do Women Allow for Abuse?

Some people say a lot of things to women like they are willing to be abused or that they can handle mistreatment. Here is a brief comment from my end: Men do the same but nobody sits there and uses this ability against them. Scroll to 9:38 for “Journey to America” by Akbar Ahmed. Farhan, the former President of the Local MSA, states that when he was being beaten by some men, he was unable to respond because he knew them. Truth is that most of the abusers who like punishing women actually know them one way or another. So, some women are reacting just like some men when it comes to reactions like these. I wonder if this reaction is tying into “Empathy” and not just “Tend and Befriend” response!
