TN 17-year-old and 27-year-old Face Charges in Incident of Intimate Partner Violence
In September 2018 a 17-year-old boy and 27-year-old man in Tennessee are facing charges after assaulting and threatening a 15-year-old-girl, the boy’s former girlfriend. In the United States nearly three women die at the hands of a current or former intimate partner every day. Intimate partner violence and threats are an attempt at controlling women’s behavior, and therefore marginalizes them. This is an example of the patriarchy.
