I work with many women and very young children that deal with this every day. We all deserve to feel safe from all types of abuse!

To hit a women Shows and separates the men from the cowards. These men are the lowest of the low and deserve locking u for a very long time and let's see how they cower when there are only
men to hit. To lay a hand in violence on a women is something that must be stopped and the law should be changed in a way that makes such offenses an immediate cpmpulsory prison sentence. Shalom may HaShem protect all those women at risk

I was not beat but I was raped by a Hispanic male that I knew and the police let him go at the station because they said they had no Spanish interpreter but he spoke English probably better than me then I was told he fled the country and went back to Mexico but he didn't years ago I seen him in Wal Mart and called Bill Blanton but my husband Jerry was trying to get a hold of him before the police got there so he got away or I would probably lost my husband! And he would have gone free again...

And he would have gone free again the alleged rapist (I have to say alleged because I haven’t been able to prove it yet) was Frank Pinero so if anyone knows where he is let me know! And no man should touch a woman in that manner or a woman touch a man beating is wrong!

I would have never even dreamed he would do something like that to me when he brought his niece into the daycare he was always so nice and polite but that goes to so the Devil can blind anyone because I sense things about people and he had me fooled. And the even more terrible things about this is I had bite his hands and of course the cops at that time said he had no marks and also said you’re one of the lucky ones most of the time they kill the person. Gee how did they figure I was lucky...

We can all take responsibility for helping to bring about change, and keeping our friends and colleagues safe from domestic violence. That's all nonviolence is - organized love.

It is telling that the Gov't is willing to take this away from women (and children) who have already been victimized. Sick.

Yep. I get that same disgusted/revolted feeling looking at the Statistics over the last five years for reports of domestic violence and rape here in Canada. Stats are supposedt o be a relfection of teh communities they are related to, and some of these stats aren't changing....What does that say about the abuse? Not that it's going down, but rather, that someone higher up the food chain has decided that if you' aren't first in line, then you're not worth the money spent to protect or...

Yep. I get that same disgusted/revolted feeling looking at the Statistics over the last five years for reports of domestic violence and rape here in Canada. Stats are supposedt o be a relfection of teh communities they are related to, and some of these stats aren't changing....What does that say about the abuse? Not that it's going down, but rather, that someone higher up the food chain has decided that if you' aren't first in line, then you're not worth the money spent to protect or investigate or treat as an equal when the end of what they're willing to report gets hit before you get help, oh well! We're still sending the message to women and children here in Canada that we dont' care if they're harmed, we care about whether or not the harm they've suffered can be peddled into a lifelong gravy train with award and a pardon for further freedom to continue to commit abuse. It's sickening that rapists, murdererr, pedophiles and those who commit incest are abl e (through the system) to force women and children into visitation with such persons under the excuse of "the child's best interests, meaningful relationship clauses and parental alienation" excuses. I'm proud of myself for standing up and speaking out against it, and I'll be far happier to see that our voices are being heard, and that we 're all doing something to stop this from continuing. I often wonder if the basis for such campaigns as "Men Can Stop Rape" and White Ribbon are based on fact (that most men aren't like this) or if that is what they want people to believe and to strive for, a kind of false hope - fake it 'til you make it, kind of idea. It scares me to be left wondering which is the truth, and not knowing; if the former is the truth, change would have ensued; oif it is the latter, then the reserach shows that it amy take another decade to make a change in schools, and still another two generations before we see enough political change to make our efforts tangible and real. It's worth, it, but what a cost to have paid. It is war. A war in which the most harmful weapon is "silence." I gather hope from petiotions like this one; there are people speaking up, speaking out, I'm not alone, and I am not the only one. Thank you again, Natalie, and Les, for both of you siging and saying something. I appreciate it; it's an act of equality/love, and that love is real, and I am grateful.

I am a previous victim of domestic violence, I say previous because I was able to escape eventually. I spent years with the man raping and hitting me, locking me in or out of rooms. money and car keys taken away. I stayed because I had no where to go. out of nowhere one day I left his room and decided I had to get out of there, so I waited until he left for work that night, called a shelter and the police. it took me some time to get the courage to go outside the shelter, but I got a...

I am a previous victim of domestic violence, I say previous because I was able to escape eventually. I spent years with the man raping and hitting me, locking me in or out of rooms. money and car keys taken away. I stayed because I had no where to go. out of nowhere one day I left his room and decided I had to get out of there, so I waited until he left for work that night, called a shelter and the police. it took me some time to get the courage to go outside the shelter, but I got a protection order and a divorce 9 months later. I felt better about myself but still scared of him. I have moved 9 times in 7 years, afraid. and now he knows where I am again. so I switched apartments but I cant keep running. I have lost more than I care to admit during the relationship with this man. I am alive today, and have woken up everyday for the last few years not bruised or locked in something. I am not posting this for any pity, nor do I wish for any negative comments, I am simply sharing my experience in the hope that even one person who is experiencing this type of situation may know they are not alone. their feelings are valid. and believe it or not, someone out there cares. like or comment, but like I said if it is negative or something, keep it to yourself. domestic violence is real, and can happen to anyone, anywhere and at anytime. thanks

Press CHARGES and put him away!!! You need to take back your OWN power over YOUR life! DO NOT continue to move STAND UP FOR YOURSELF! Love N Respect N Hugs to you. I kept my residences silent from my exhusband for four or five years when I first left him. When I stood up to him and threatened to press charges and put him away he started to work on his own issues and our relationship changed and we became better parents for it! Congratulations on your Courage!!!
