Domestic violence awareness: Stop the cycle of violence


Date: June 22, 2016
  • SHARE:

The laws in many states of the United States of America cover incidents of violence occurring between married couples as well as abuse of elders, abuse between room-mates, dating couples and those in lesbian or gay relationships. The abuser may also use a number of tactics other than physical violence to maintain power and control over the partner.

Tough law enforcement, prevention programmes and shelters are needed as well as ensuring that more people know and understand that domestic violence is not a private matter.
