A study was considered to explore the aspirations on Belizean police turning a blind eye towards violence against their women. Using a qualitative various procedures tactic, statistics were composed through content analysis within billboards, newspapers, books, magazine articles, advertisements, musical lyrics, articles of clothing, and works of art. Subjects were Belizean women, all ages, living throughout their country. The women demonstrated resemblances in everyday physical and social routines throughout the various cities visited, reflecting the cultural miseducation well-preserved and spread by schools, libraries, museums, churches, and television. There were questionable actions that arose unfolding the women’s roles in society. Each woman displayed her life through the activities taken place in society differently. However, this seemed to vary depending on the individuals circumstances.
Domestic violence is a complex issue and crosses the limitations of numerous disciplines. There are no easy responses to deal with this social phenomenon. Additionally, for too long, school and society have been disengaged, and many times instructors tend to overlook that the students with whom they work are the products of their environment. In order to address the dispute of domestic violence in Belize, I will clarify my current discoveries in Belize about domestic violence to exemplify that domestic violence has no barriers in relationship to age, ethnicity or educational level, and that there are diverse forms of abuse in Belize. I gathered a broad perspective of what is occurring in these individuals household by observing their behavior and looking at content throughout the country. My discoveries revealed that no one is immune from domestic violence: stay at home or laboring women, young or old, Creole or Mayan, rural or urban settlements. The women had common experiences; they were ill-treated as an outcome agonized in their intimate relationships is it financially, verbally, physically, sexually, or otherwise. Children felt the outcome of the mistreatment too. Trans-culturally, women are not the only ones who plunge victims to male culprits. Children who are females are also victims of vehemence in countless parts of the world. Some of them even before birth or at birth are terminated in numerous countries. Subsequently, the lives of male children are more treasured because they can linger the family’s name or act as a haven for the aging.
During my stay in Belize I plan to identify the various issues regarding violence amongst their women. I will explore the state published rates of acts of domestic violence. Also, I will explore women’s response to men depicted in the various forms of media and lecture content. I will collect copies of relevant magazines, photos of public billboards. In order to capture the significance of each woman’s devastating encounter I used a camera in addition to my field notes. I kept a journal to record thoughts about abused women, and my personal familiarities and reflections. I took a variety of diverse pictures that will help clarify the reasons behind domestic violence. All transcriptions and photographs were kept in a secure place to which was only available to me. I took over 500 photos. Each photograph was an eye opener for the Belizean society. Also, within my two week stay in Belize I was able to get a variety of newspapers and books. I will reproduce stories from each of my sources and capture a variety of perceptions related to the questions of domestic violence. The other sources were just observing the behavior of the women within the streets of Belize. My other questions shall be answered by observing female children at school, home, and women with their intimate male partner. I believe the family and folk culture educate/miseducate
