In my community, Mercy would still face some individual factors like if she witnessed violence in her own household and so on but there would be different protective factors in the community and society levels, including different gender norms. There is a lot of stigma around domestic violence among both men and women in my society so Clinton would have experienced more shaming from his peers (hopefully) because violence is not normalised however he also could have kept the violence more to himself and not shared it with his friends when drinking because he would be aware he would stigmatised by it.
