English - Shakespeare

In "Othello" Desdemona is slapped by Othello in Act 4 Scene 1. Why soesn't she defend herself eventhough she's innocent? I was thinking that maybe she was just too stunned to do anything or maybe she thought that something was wrong such as he was ill or he was angry for being called back to Venice. Are either of these right or is it something else?
