Domestic Violence Awareness Month
This will be a different kind of blog post this month. I'm stepping away from the usual content of emotional healing to bring an equally important content about domestic violence. Domestic violence is a reality. There's no getting around it. Chances are you have experienced it or know someone that has. 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men will experience severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. 1 in 10 women in the United States will be raped by an intimate partner in her lifetime. The term intimate partner includes married couples too. Women can be raped by their husbands.
