  1. Yes, awareness matters.

  2. Thank you Noah Brand for posting my story in your article. Victims of abuse can be found in all social and economic classes and can be of either sex. They can be wealthy, educated, and prominent as well as under-educated and financially destitute. Victims of domestic violence live in rural towns, urban cities, subsidized housing projects, and in gated communities. The over representation of underprivileged women in domestic violence crime reports may be due to several factors, including the fact that those seeking public assistance or services are subject to data tracking trends that often capture this information.
    If communities are dedicated to ending domestic violence, they must strive to hear the voices of adults and children who suffer from abuse so that a collective agenda of building healthy, safe, and stable families can be accomplished.

    • Thank you so much for lighting the way and doing your part to help end the stigma of allowing this sort of crime to continue because of cultural fear and discomfort by society.
      Bless and I hope when I get the chance I can shine my courage so less women will suffer directly & indirectly.
      Bless X
