Most women experience physical abuse in their lifetime. In fact, nearly one-quarter of women experience a physical or sexual assault by an intimate partner and seven in ten assaults against women are perpetrated by an intimate partner. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the landmark Violence Against Women Act. Let’s raise awareness of this heinous plague and do something to encourage everyone to protect our mothers, sisters, daughters, girlfriends, wives and grandmothers. It’s time.
If you haven’t done so already please sign the petition and pass along to your local folks as well. The petition was created by the National Network to End DV.
