    Feminism is a good way to identify Power Relations without bias.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is not accurate. Feminism is a social and political movement that seeks to achieve equality between genders, particularly advocating for women's rights and addressing issues such as sexism and gender discrimination. While feminism aims to challenge power imbalances and promote gender equality, it does not claim to identify power relations without bias. Like any ideology or movement, feminism can have different perspectives and interpretations, and individuals within the movement may hold their own biases. Therefore, the statement that feminism is a good way to identify power relations without bias is false.

    Psychological and sociological perspectives are the 2 main discourses in domestic violence.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Psychological and sociological perspectives are indeed the two main discourses in domestic violence. Psychological perspective focuses on the individual factors that contribute to domestic violence, such as mental health issues or personality traits. Sociological perspective, on the other hand, examines the broader societal factors that influence domestic violence, such as gender norms or power dynamics. Both perspectives are important in understanding and addressing the complex issue of domestic violence.

    Alcohol is a good indicator physical abuse.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is incorrect. Alcohol is not a good indicator of physical abuse. Physical abuse can occur whether or not alcohol is involved. There are various factors that can contribute to physical abuse, such as anger, control issues, and power imbalances, which are not necessarily related to alcohol consumption. Therefore, it is incorrect to state that alcohol is a good indicator of physical abuse.

    There are 4 assumptions in the Feminist Theory.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The correct answer is False because the Feminist Theory does not have a fixed number of assumptions. It is a diverse and evolving theory that encompasses a range of perspectives and assumptions. The number of assumptions can vary depending on the specific feminist theory being discussed. Therefore, it is incorrect to state that there are exactly 4 assumptions in the Feminist Theory.

    Alcohol consumption was never seen to legitimize violence. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that alcohol consumption does legitimize violence. However, this is not true. Research and studies have consistently shown that while alcohol can lower inhibitions and increase aggression, it does not justify or legitimize violent behavior. Violence is a result of various complex factors, and alcohol consumption alone cannot be used as a justification for violent actions. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the "Accuser" displays a sense of power or authority. This implies that the Accuser is someone who has the ability to accuse or make allegations against others, and this role typically holds a position of influence or control. Therefore, the statement is true as it indicates that the Accuser is powerful.

    It is important to identify gender in Positioning Theory.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    In Positioning Theory, gender is not considered as an important factor to identify. Positioning Theory focuses on how individuals construct their identities and social positions through interactions with others. It emphasizes the roles and positions people take on in conversations and interactions, rather than their gender. Therefore, it is not necessary to identify gender in Positioning Theory.
