    Physical and emotional abuse is ignorance can be related to a number of factors.

    for example:
    - cultural expectations
    *e.g. perhaps women are not encouraged to speak up, and the idea of abuse is supposed to be silenced

    - personal experiences
    * e.g. they may have gone through physical and emotional abuse many times already (e.g. childhood abuse, intimate relationships, parental abuse etc.) and have normalised the idea

    - fear
    *e.g. they've been threatened, don't want to cause problems for the relationship/s, they believe they are at fault for the abuse

    - no social support/don't know where to seek help
    *e.g. they depend on their partner, and don't have anywhere to turn

    of course there are many other factors that drive a person to not address their abuse, but these are a few examples you might want to look into further.

    as for importance of support:
    e.g. it allows them a sense of safety, encouragement to speak up, information (to understand why it's okay to ask for help), self-esteem/confidence boost. etc.

    as above, these are only a few examples you might want to look up (:
