Abstract

This study examined the relationship among sex role socialization, history of family violence, and being a victim of domestic violence. The unit of analysis consisted of 30 women that are victims of domestic violence from the Mount Ephraim Baptist Church Educational Program in Atlanta, Georgia. The study was based on the premises that: 1) there would be a significant relationship between history of family violence and being a victim of domestic violence; and 2) there would be a significant relationship between sex role socialization and being a victim of domestic violence.

A face to face survey research design was used to collect the data. The sample was a convenient sample of women taking educational classes at Mount Ephraim Baptist Church. Results of the findings indicated that there was no significant relationship between sex role socialization and domestic violence as well as no significant relationship between history of family violence and domestic violence. Implications for practice and future research are discussed.
