Break the Silence, Stop Domestic Violence

One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Chances are, someone you know well is a victim.

Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior perpetrated by an intimate partner against another. It is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community, regardless of age, economic status, race, religion, nationality or educational background.

Violence against women is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior, and thus is part of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence results in physical injury, psychological trauma, and far too often – murder.

An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year. That is 2-3 women, every minute of every day. Most cases of domestic violence are never reported to the police.

For too long, this epidemic has been allowed to remain in the shadows of our society. The Tiana Angelique Notice Foundation is working to place it squarely in the spotlight so our governments, communities, and families can get serious about intervening with batterers and protecting victims – now.

Stay safe, stay Alive.
