Domestic Violence affects millions – women, children and men. Domestic violence effects people of every race, religion, sexual and gender orientation and economic status.
There’s a stereotype that domestic violence is ONLY black eyes and physical violence….it’s also yelling, humiliation, stalking, manipulation, coercion, threats and isolation. Stealing a paycheck, constant texting and so many other methods are used to control others.
In 1994 the Violence Against Women Act was passed – and we’ve come a long way, but not far enough.
