Women are a very difficult concept to understand, i say that being one myself, but it is true. A woman that return to an abusive husband are not easily able to let go. Its hard to leave a loved one that may have cheated on you, and same goes for a loved one hitting/beating you. Love can be bad and it can be good. We, as women cannot control the type of men we love, and me sometimes make the wrong choices, and sometimes we don't even realize it until its almost too late, however, we love them so we tell ourselves that they may change eventually, and keep making up excuses for them that way you don't seem to tell yourself that its them that is the problem or has the problem. Its hard to let someone go after so so much love and so much time and effort put into the relationship that you may look over it, because of the love you have for them. Love-Kristin D. I think the codependent thing is a myth, at least for most women. I got sucked in to a relationship with an N as a financially secure, independent woman. He was absolutely charming at first! It took some time for the abuse to begin, but it was executed bit by bit until there were more bad times than good. It happened gradually. Hey, the last thing a woman needs to hear is that this stuff is somehow her fault, like she asked for it or something. All women are not suckers, sorry.

Why there is so much abuse of women in Things Fall Apart?

There is abuse of women in Things Fall Apart because there is abuse of women in real life. Achebe chooses to write about abuse of women both because it is a real issue, and also because it drives the plot. Achebe also writes about abuse of men, such as the killing of Ikemefuna, war, and Okonkwo fighting with agbala men, but it may not be as notable because there is a greater distaste for violence against women than there is for violence against men. This is a subjective question.
