Domestic Violence Awareness

June 28, 2013 - 5:38 pm

The first major global review of violence against women was released earlier this month by The World Health Organization. It found that about a third of women worldwide have been physically or sexually assaulted by a former or current partner.

Here in Washington, 755 people have died in domestic violence fatalities since 1997.  Programs say the demand for domestic violence services is increasing, but budgets for them are being cut.

Today, we talk about domestic violence.  How do we identify it?  How can we help our loved ones if they reach out to us, and how do we prevent violence in the home?
