I was a victim of domestic violence, but was able to walk away from it. Although I spent several years wondering if he would shoot me in the dark one night, I was lucky. So many women don't have that luck.
I know that feeling too...
I am glad you got away! I spent 10 years in an abusive relationship. When I got out..he followed..but I put him in the state pen for 7 years!
I never went through this type of behavior watching my back...but I am aware, i have seen and it scares me.Allah bles you all for being survivors.
mam i am egyptian and i live in egypt . i agree with u that . and it must be stopped . but i believe that v.a.w is internationally committed . thats the nature dear if two men fought each other the weak will lose thus ladies have to make the wise choice about her bed mate or her opponent .
May the Almighty grant such strength to all the victims of Domestic Violence.............and may He enlighten the minds of those men who keep abusing and bruising there partners instead of utilising there physical strength in protecting them...........!
Hope someday these morons will learn to respect a women's heart..............and thus behave more like a Human than an animal...........even animals are better than these suckers 'cause they atleast protect their own clan!
God bless such creatures!
Traci Tucker U broke the ice with him good for u. Jail is where he need and should be. Good luck.
I grew up watching this kind of abuse betweenmy parents and i want all women to sign this peition,it i inportant!!!!!!!
I support this petition... The House of Reps needs to reauthorize this act fast to protect victims of domestic violence.
This is very important, our elected offices need to expand their vision to include more then just what is best for them or as American citizens it is our duty to find someone to replace them.
Any Man who raises his voice, or his hands to a woman, is a Coward!
We've GOT to keep fighting for the 'protection of our women' until this violence, (physical and verbal abuse) STOP.
any man who hits a woman is on man.
What really scary is when a totally strange man attacks you from out of nowhere. Even though the D.A is pressing charges he is out on bail and I am in fear of continuing to walk. He took the freedom from me in a matter of seconds.
you are a weak man when you beat a woman :(
I was also a victim of domestic violence. At that time there was no help for women. You took your chances and hopefully got away. I know some that did not, including children. Thank God for help from my family, the police would do nothing. Don't let it go back to the "Dark Ages".
And, what about verbal, mental and emotional abuse? Too often this abuse is swept under the rug like it's not an issue because we have been raised with the expression: "Sticks & stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me."
