On one hand, domestic violence committed by intimate partners — current or former spouses, boyfriends or girlfriends — has declined by more than 60 percent since the mid-1990s, according to Justice Department figures.
Yet the dramatic decrease from 1995 through 2004 has largely stalled, with the numbers stabilizing at a level that appalls people in the prevention field. The latest federal figures for "serious" intimate partner violence — sexual assault or aggravated physical assault — showed 360,820 such incidents in 2013, or roughly 1,000 per day.
October is "Domestic Violence Awareness" month, and it's important to shed a light on a matter that affects 1 out of 4 women during her lifetime.

October is the month supposedly set aside for Domestic Violence Awareness. However, it is also Breast Cancer Awareness and the issue of Domestic Abuse and Domestic Violence is overshadowed.
It is very important that we push to keep domestic violence on the plate of medias through whatever means are available to you. It is an epidemic and seriously out control and destroying families and relationships.
Join us as we share information regarding what you can do this month to support advocates who are against domestic violence and fighting to make sure that it is kept on the front and not the back burner.
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.
