Records show that between 1925-1945, spousal violence accounted for more homicides in New Orleans than any other single source of lethal violence. Domestic abuse is viewed through the lens of race and culture. African-Americans were five times more likely to be victims of criminal acts. During the era studied, African-American partner homicide occurred at a rate of eight times that of whites. Whereas in most cases of domestic homicide the woman is the victim, the opposite was true in New Orleans of the mid-1920s to mid-1930s. This study looks at the culture that gave rise to so many common-law marriages among African-Americans and the stressors that led to violence.

Ahmed, a.T., & McCaw, B.R. (2010). Mental health services utilization among women experiencing intimate partner violence. American Journal of Managed Care 16 (10), 731-

Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a common experience in the lives of women. Its effect on physical and Mental health are significant and, in terms of health care expenses, quite costly. Researchers conducted a cross-sectional study among members of Kaiser Permanente Northern California Medical Services Plan to better understand screening processes and dissemination of support and resources information. The researchers found that women who were African-American, Hispanic, or non-English speakers were less likely to seek additional services after the initial intake by health services personnel. The researchers present several scenarios explaining why women may refuse or fail to pursue services. It is suggested that further study be undertaken to determine ways in which health care workers can provide assistance to victims of domestic abuse, including diagnosis and treatment of depression.

Harris, L.J. (2010). Failure to protect from exposure to domestic violence in private custody contests. Family Law Quarterly 44 (2), 169-175.

Custody statutes vary from state to state and it is ultimately the ruling of a judge that determines custody arrangements for a minor child where there have been instances of spousal abuse. In some cases, the judge has ruled against custody by the abused parent, citing that exposure to violence can harm a child, even when that abuse is not directed toward the child. In some cases, judges have denied custody when it has been determined that violence prevents the victim from adequately caring for or protecting the child. Several legislative solutions are proposed to address this issue.
