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. Too often we continue to believe that domestic violence has a look, or affects a certain race, financial bracket or many other traits that aren't true. Join us two survivors sit down to discuss their testimonies, victories and the aftermath of being in abusive relationships. They may look very different on the outside, but their journeys are quite similar.

This will be a heartfelt interview with my guest Suzanne Perry who is a survivor of domestic violence. Often you hide the bruises and the shame behind a smile while afraid on the inside to speak up and take control back in your life. Together we will give information on how to escape the behavior and take that first step towards the rest of your life before death becomes your alternative. Domestic Violence is not on a female problem but men are abused as well. Let's stop the cycle and stop the madness.

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.
Ms. Bevelyn Mitchell, She has worked in the field of Social Work for the past 16 years. Much of her work has been done in Horry, Georgetown and Williamsburg counties. She believes that God has given her the compassion to relate to those who are hurting. This also allows her to educate the community, local hospitals, law enforcement, educators and anyone who listen. Rape is forced, unwanted sexual intercourse. Rape, sometimes also called sexual assault, can happen to both men and women of any age.
Dr. Beverly Boone, is a native of Troy, North Carolina. If you look at a map of North Carolina, you will see that Troy (Montgomery County) sits in the middle of the state.

Our focus for this broadcast is to bring awareness to Domestic Violence.
Statistics for Domestic Violence:
Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten. Around the world, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime. Most often, the abuser is a member of her own family.
Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined.
Studies suggest that up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually. Nearly 1 in 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship said a boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm if presented with a breakup.
Everyday in the US, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends. Ninety-two percent of women surveyed listed reducing domestic violence and sexual assault as their top concern.
Based on reports from 10 countries, between 55 percent and 95 percent of women who had been physically abused by their partners had never contacted non-governmental organizations, shelters, or the police for help.
The costs of intimate partner violence in the US alone exceed $5.8 billion per year: $4.1 billion are for direct medical and health care services, while productivity losses account for nearly $1.8 billion.
