"About Us!"

The American Medical Association estimates that over 4 million women are victims of severe assaults by boyfriends and husbands each year. About 1 in 4 women is likely to be abused by a partner in her lifetime. (Sara Glazer, "Violence Against Women," CQ Researcher, Congressional Quarterly Inc., Vol. 3, No. 8, Feb. 1993, p.171.)

Domestic Violence is a pattern of behavior which establishes power and control over another person through fear and intimidation, often including the threat of violence.

Cycle of Violence

Not all domestic violence is physical. It can be emotional abuse, economic abuse, sexual abuse, threats, using male privilege, intimidation, isolation, and a variety of other behaviors used to maintain fear, intimidation, and power.

Domestic Violence is often called Spousal Abuse, Woman Battering, and Wife Bashing.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS A CRIME, EVEN WHEN COMMITTED BY SOMEONE YOU LOVE.
