The model from Duluth, Minnesota. Par for the course.



Duluth Model: "women and children are vulnerable to violence because of their unequal social, economic, and political status in society", based on a "violence is patriarchal" model. It focuses on men's use of violence in abusive relationships, rather than on the behavior of all parties concerned, so that men can be conditioned non-violent in all circumstance and any relationship. The Duluth Model originated the Duluth Power and Control Wheel.This is part of a series of videos by Man Woman and Myth which examines our understanding of one of the most sucessful uses of postmodern interpretation: Feminism. Using repitition and continued reinforcement of an idea, particularly one which lends itself easily to an existing pre-condition, our understanding can be distorted to such a degree that we adhere to a given interpretation, despite evidence to the contrary.
