October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

  • One out of every three women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime.
  • More than three women are murdered by their partners in the United States every day. For women who are pregnant, homicide is the leading cause of death.
  • Women between the ages of 16 and 24 have the highest risk of being victimized by intimate partner violence.
  • Of teenagers who have experienced a physical assault by an intimate partner, less than three percent reported the incident to an authority figure such as the police, a social worker, a counselor, or a teacher.

Women are HALF the world’s population,
Work TWO THIRDS of the world’s working hours,
Receiving 10% of the world’s income, 
Owning less than 1% of the world’s property.

Talk about taking budget cuts to an extreme; this is outrageous and certainly more costly in the long run, both in terms of human and monetary costs. Isn’t the fundamental purpose of government, as Thomas Jefferson said, “to enable the people of a nation to live in safety and happiness”?
