Intimate partner violence is a universal public health and public safety problem. Its disproportionate infliction on women may be influenced by patriarchal beliefs that dismiss violence against the female partner as a socially rationalized act.

This is a secondary analysis of a domestic violence survey conducted in a Spanish-speaking community. The relationship between patriarchal beliefs and attitudes toward violence was examined. Agreement with the statement “some women like to be hit” was equal for both men and women. This response was also associated with having known someone abused.

Sharing a common language, culture, or heritage can also mean sharing common beliefs, attitudes, and experiences. A researcher, educator, or responder who is familiar with these matters can hold a deeper appreciation of a victim's community construct.

Spanish
La violencia doméstica es un problema universal de salud pública y seguridad. Las mujeres son la mayoría de sus víctimas. Esto se debe, posiblemente, a creencias patriarcales y actitudes hacia la violencia contra la mujer como un acto racionalizado socialmente.

Este análisis secundario de un cuestionario sobre la violencia doméstica conducido en una comunidad de habla hispana, examina la asociación entre creencias patriarcales y actitudes hacia la violencia entre adultos. Ambos sexos estaban de acuerdo que “Algunas mujeres les gusta que les pegue.” Esta respuesta está relacionada al hecho de haber conocido a alguien que fue abusado.

El compartir un lenguaje, cultura o patrimonio puede también significar el compartir creencias, actitudes y experiencias. Un investigador, educador o personas familiarizadas a este asunto, podrían tener una apreciación más profunda de la estructura comunitaria de la víctima.
