Domestic Violence-Know The Signs
“October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which evolved from the first Day of Unity observed in October, 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Its aim was to connect battered women’s advocates across the country who were working to end violence against women and their children. Today, a woman is assaulted or beaten every 9 seconds in the U.S., making the discussion on domestic violence and its impact on our society still vitally important.
According to the Domestic Violence Resource Center, one in four women (25 percent) has experienced domestic violence in her lifetime. And it’s not just physical abuse that accounts for these assaults; forms of domestic violence include emotional, psychological, verbal, physical and sexual. This includes physical and sexual assault, harassment, threats, name-calling, controlling behavior, stalking and more.
The rest of the story is HERE.
Abuse is not normal and should never be tolerated. Relationships are about respect, love and feeling safe to be yourself. You should never feel scared or threatened in a relationship, whether that threat comes from emotional manipulation or the fear of physical assault (neither is acceptable).
Despite any stereotypes or myths about domestic violence – like that abuse only happens to minorities, that some women deserve it, or that abusers are always easily identified – the truth is it can happen to anyone. But there are ways to identify the signs before it gets out of control, and there are plenty of resources if you’re feeling scared or alone.”
