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.

Domestic violence continues to be an issue in society. This week we have two special guests that will discuss domestic violence and provide resources for victims of domestic violence.

The topic of domestic violence been in the news. Ray Rice was shown punching his then fiancee in the face. Hope Solo was charged for hitting her sister and nephew. US District Judge Mark Fuller beat his wife and was charged. Solange Knowles fought her brother in law Jay Z and wasn't even charged. Some in the public feel domestic violence is wrong for men but give excuse to women. Another group feel if the abuse is on tape it makes it worse. If we are going to say domestic violence is wrong then why do we have the same people giving excuse to something that wrong. We want to speak about this tonight and get some answers.
