Power and Control in Kathmandu: A Comparison of Attempted Power, Actual Power, and Achieved Power



Power and Control in Kathmandu: A Comparison of Attempted Power, Actual Power, and Achieved Power



Violence Against Women 23(4): 482-502



We argue that the concept of power has been inadvertently sidelined in recent theory and research on husband violence. Three types of relationship power may matter with respect to husband violence: attempted power, actual power, and achieved power. Analyses of a randomly selected representative sample of 270 married or partnered women in Kathmandu showed that actual power was related to husband violence prevalence, severity, and injury. Achieved power was related to husband violence prevalence and severity, and attempted power was related to husband violence injury. Implications are discussed.
