You’ve seen the ads- a bruised and bloodied woman looks plaintively at the camera. Or a movie star plays the role of a battered woman being degraded and beaten. Or even a picture of a cemetery and mourners. All the images and audio are designed to let the watcher understand the seriousness of domestic violence. The ads can be shocking, even gut-wrenching. But what do those ads really do to help victims of domestic violence? Is the image being conveyed effective in either educating the public, or helping the victims?

Join Ms Reason and J Floyd as they discuss Domestic abuse. October is Domestic Abuse Awareness Month but we feel that everyday is awareness day. Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. This is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical. Noticing and acknowledging the signs of an abusive relationship is the first step to ending it. No one should live in fear of the person they love.
