Abstract:Findings reveal that the influences of socialization of patriarchy within the United States and Korea produce numerous manifestations of the internalization of male domination such that domestic violence was sustained and perpetuated throughout the experiences of domestic violence in the women's lives. Moreover, the patriarchal structure within the institutions of the police, the government, the health care system, the legal system, and religious organizations also contributed to sustaining and perpetuating domestic violence. The nefarious nature of domestic violence exposed states of trauma in all of the women, yet the strength of the women revealed the survivors within.
