More than 300,000 women and girls are raped, assaulted and abused in USA annually.
This number does not include those who are emotionally, psychologically and verbally abused daily. It does not include those who are coerced, intimidated, financially deprived and isolated from family.
Girls as young as 13 are in abusive relationships with 15-17 year-old boys who slap them around and who dictate with whom they may associate. Silence IS Affirming. When you become aware of these abuses, please SAY something. She is NOT His Property. Parents, grandparents, friends, teachers and other adults need to probe and ask questions if you see tell-tale signs of domestic abuse, or if you suspect that something is off; your child is not behaving normally. Ask questions. Please..
Please do ALL that you can to put an end to these abusive relationships. These patterns are established early. Please Watch and Share this 10 mins very informative video segment linked below; it includes young men, and adult men and women of multiple ethnicity. They are speaking out against domestic violence.
