Leigh Goodmark’s book, “A Troubled Marriage: Domestic Violence and the Legal System” challenges traditional ways domestic violence is understood by our society and its institutions. She sees WAVA (Women Against Violence Act, 1994) as a significant step forward in empowering women. However, although disappointed that WAVA did not pass in 2013, Dr. Goodmark urges that we see it as an opportunity to rethink how we might improve it. For example, we need to recognize that there is no “cookie cutter” solution for domestic violence. Each abused woman’s circumstances are different and in order to truly understand and help her, it is essential that we help empower her to do what is best for her. “The justice system is simply one tool, and not always the best tool, among the many available to respond to domestic violence. Those who want to eradicate woman abuse must channel their energy, creativity, and passion into constructing multiple pathways for women to live autonomous lives free of abuse”. (Goodmark, Leigh (2011-12-01). A Troubled Marriage: Domestic Violence and the Legal System (p. 198). NYU Press short. Kindle Edition)

Today our guest, Rita Bailey, Co-Chair of the Domestic Violence and Abuse Partnership Task Force in Darien, CT, will describe how a grass roots community group can help raise domestic violence awareness.
Consider the statistics:
Every 9 seconds a woman is battered in the United States.
Conservatively, each year 1 million women suffer nonfatal violence by an intimate.
Nearly 1 in 3 women experience domestic violence in their lifetime.
Ninety to ninety-five percent of domestic violence victims are women.
As many as 324,000 women each year experience intimate partner violence during their pregnancy.
The U.S. Department of Justice reported that 37 percent of all women who sought care in hospital emergency rooms for violence-related injuries were injured by a current or former spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend.
Forty percent of teenage girls age 14 to 17 report knowing someone their age who has been hit or beaten by a boyfriend.
Studies of the Surgeon General's office reveal that domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between the ages of 15 and 44, more common than automobile accidents, muggings, and cancer deaths combined. Other research has found that half of all women will experience some form of violence from their partners during marriage, and that more than one-third are battered repeatedly every year.
Domestic Violence occurs in all communities. Victims have no profile.? They are found in all ethnic and demographic groups, can have no education or hold advanced degrees in professions such as medicine, law, or be voted the most upstanding citizen and perhaps even volunteer their time to combating ?domestic violence. ?You may be surprised to learn that the above statistics ?are undoubtedly on the low side?.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and we will recognize it today with Dr. William Copeland, Associate Professor at Duke University Medical Center.
Dr. Copeland recently wrote an article (published online 2/20, 2013 In JAMA Psychiatry) on the long-term effects of bullying behavior. The findings as to what extent bullying can affect a person’s adult functioning are alarming and should be a “call to arms,” to create effective bullying prevention programs in all schools and communities.
Dr. William Copeland is a clinical psychologist and epidemiologist, who trained at the University of Vermont and completed his clinical internship at Duke University Medical Center. He is currently an Associate Professor at the Center for Developmental Epidemiology in the department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University Medical Center.

It's not uncommon to think of domestic violence as a one time event; however, the overwhelming majority of domestic violence victims are routinely abused, leading to chronic major health problems. Women who have experienced Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) in their lifetime were more likely to report having asthma, diabetes, frequent headaches, chronic pain, poor physical and mental health, also health problems which results in physical and psychological damage to victims and their families. It's a national health problem, not "their" problem, and all of us need to recognize and accept the severity of domestic violence and its consequences to society at large.
Today, I will be joined by Susan Delaney of DVCC (Domestic Violence Crisis Center CT) to help us understand the rippling effect of domestic violence, and the importance of joining together to deal with this crisis.
Susan Delaney is founder and director of the Medical Advocacy Project and the Training Advocacy Project for the Domestic Violence Crisis Center of Norwalk and Stamford. Susan has been working in the field of domestic violence advocacy for over twenty five years.
