October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Most of my women friends have been raped in their lifetime.  I find that absolutely appalling.  Often this event occurred decades ago, but even now, they are still traumatized by that rape experience.  

In fact,

  • 1 in 5 women have been raped in their lifetime 
  • 1 in 6 women have been stalked during their lifetime. 
  • 1 in 4 women have been the victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner
