Who's to blame for violence against women?
This is a clip from Fox News where a debate about gun control turns into a discussion about women protecting themselves from violence from "larger, more powerful" men. What I find scary about this clip is that the only female involved in the discussion states that women need to "make better decisions" to avoid violence. The focus is about how women bear the responsibility of protecting themselves, not on how men should not be committing violence against women.
