women should fight back , I started at age 3 on the street good thing didn't go to daycares... also avoid men with higher I.Q. or lot's of money ( psychological abusive behavior as well as sexual harrassment, can be harder to prove ) next time a man picks on you....a little laxative in his coffee or beer or special desert? study that kemistry...ha ha...

Domestic violence is everybody's business! We need to act as a community and stand up for justice for those who are experiencing this awful abuse of power and control. We need more men to stand up against domestic violence, so well done to those who have.

As I heard a man on TV say one day - this abuse will not stop until MEN stand up to MEN and tell them it is not ok to do this. Women are always speaking but men just let it go and until they stand up - it will continue. It is very common and has many prisoners. There are also women who abuse men, so this is not just one sided. I spent 20 years in abuse and 20 years before that and I am a very confident woman - you would have never known that I was being abused. I didn't have the...

As I heard a man on TV say one day - this abuse will not stop until MEN stand up to MEN and tell them it is not ok to do this. Women are always speaking but men just let it go and until they stand up - it will continue. It is very common and has many prisoners. There are also women who abuse men, so this is not just one sided. I spent 20 years in abuse and 20 years before that and I am a very confident woman - you would have never known that I was being abused. I didn't have the "personality" of an abused person. It's kind of like what is "normal" - we don't know. You have to understand what goes on and how it works in order to really understand it. Abusers take prisoners (brainwash) of the woman, man and entire family and they suffer for the rest of their life. PTSD forever. I moved on but I still have my triggers and my filtering system. I am very fortunate to have found a wonderful man now - God was good to me this second time around. But, first, I had to retrain my brain.

Having been a victim of domestic violence myself, I am for any legislation that will protect a victim. It takes courage, strength to leave, I left before I was killed and I thank God for the help I received. My life is so different now. I am grateful.

Violence Against Women Act must be allowed by our government. What is the House of Representatives thinking? How would victims of abuse find a safe haven? So they want us to go back to the Dark Ages. Please sign.

Glad to support this worthy petition, men who are violent towards women are the lowest of the low. I have experienced first hand the damage done by domestic violence and sadly not much has changed since then.
