"Happiness is not a reward - it is a consequence. Suffering is not a punishment - it is a result." -Robert Ingersoll

I find that this quote explains the situation well for a rational person, but in your case I would suggest bringing up a hypothetical situation where the woman herself is the victim of senseless violence.

If she continues her ignorant ravings just withdraw from the argument, she will never admit defeat.
