7/12/16 – Today, President Obama was in Dallas to honor the memory of the five police officers who were killed last week. Although no women were killed by the gunshots, it brings to mind the many women who are killed in intimate partner violence almost in silence from the communities that should be preventing more of these acts.
My blog and Pinterest board are one small attempt to raise public awareness through education and learning from victims’ experiences. We need to get to women before they become prey to perpetrators who intend harm: emotionally, verbally, physically and financially.
I hope you share my Pinterest board, “Women and Violence,” with others.
