Stop domestic violence
Battering is the establishment of control and fear in a relationship through violence and/or a series of behaviors including intimidation, threats, psychological abuse, isolation, coercing and controlling another person.
Battering is the single most common cause of injury to women, more than muggings, auto accidents, and sexual assaults combined.
Every single day, women lose their lives to violence perpetrated by a husband or boyfriend, an estimated 1/3 of the women who are abused.
Women who are murdered are not the only ones who die. One in four women who commit suicide are the victims of domestic violence.
- In memory of Rachel Susan Miller (1970 - 2000)
who wrote these words.
1. Never abuse the woman you love, or any other individual.
2. By supporting this cause, you help rise awareness about the issue, which again can lead to change - because it all begins in the human mind.
