SORT BY Relevancy
The words domestic violence are usually assoiciated with an adult woman being abused by an adult male. One in four women will be affected by some form of domestic violence, in their lifetime. Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, psychological violence, and emotional abuse. http://www.ncadv.org/need-support/what-is-domestic-violence.
With awareness growing, studies have been geared to teen domestic violence. The statistics are alarming. http://www.loveisrespect.org/resources/dating-violence-statistics/ Over 1.5 million high school students will experience some form of physical abuse, this year. 43% of college dating women have reported some form of abuse. These numbers only include the reported number of cases. Statistically, only 33% of those vicitims every told anyone about the abuse. Parents that were surveyed don't believe that teen domestic violence is an issue (81%). The shocking part, only 58% of parents could identify the signs of an abusive relationship.
Organizations can spread awareness, but education is needed for our teens. As of July 2014, only 22 states had some form of legislation; in place, that addresses education for teen dating violence. http://www.ncsl.org/research/health/teen-dating-violence.aspx
Spreading awareness is a step in the right direction, but without educational programs we could see these statistics continue to grow.
Physical Violence and Domestic Abuse Are not exclussively to having female victims! Men are significantly abused and victims of physical violence OFTEN in relationships by their female counterpart! We REALLY have to elevate our level and methodology towards EDUCATING ALL PEOPLE to the down sides of #PhysicalViolence and #DomesticAbuse We must STOP SETTING OUR WOMEN UP with the ignorant notion and cindiotoning that they can merely violently act on thier emotional empulses of dislike and distain, etc!!! This will significantly help our society as a whole, vs just the "battered women of the country"!

Lindsay Fischer shares her story of domestic violence, and talks about her website. Lindsay lives her life fiercely, staring down fear and opposition, to prove that. Through speaking, advocacy work and writing, she shares the darkest parts of her life so others will understand.
As domestic and sexual abuse awareness grow, the common statement "Why didn't they just leave," still gets mentioned. Matthew Eaton will join the show today and talk about the 13 insidious rules of sexual abuse survivors. Many times we associate abuse with some form of physical abuse. However, the emotional abuse that goes along with the physical abuse can be more harmful, than the bruises. The bruises go away, but the emotional torment can take a long time to go away. Mathew will also share his story, and how he has survived. He now writes and blogs about sexual abuse, and is an advocate to raise awareness.
Nearly three out of four (74%) of Americans personally know someone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence. 30% of Americans say they know a woman who has been physically abused by her husband or boyfriend in the past year. We have to put a stop to the violence. The Gray Matter Show with Apostle Gray has determined to expose different areas of our lives that have become normal occurrence like domestic violence. Here’s a message sent to us by a listener that contacted us this week to share with us what she would love to see us discuss with our audience. I asked her what would you like to address in this show. RH says “After you have the courage to leave....then what? So many of us stay not because we love them, we don't know how to or forget how to survive without them. My ex became the bread winner. We were more than okay with just his income. Then to try to pay the bills and pick up the slack after they are gone, it's hard. It's hard to say to family and friends I need help. They always ask, then why did you leave? Sometimes you have to stay for your good. But then you say, I had to leave to save my life, my children's lives”. Join us the discussion tonight with our special guest Dr. Alice Hodges, Executive Director of Meg’s House.
