DVAM (DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH)
Domestic Violence Awareness Month occurs during the month of October of every year and is sponsored and managed by the National Network To End Domestic Violence (NNEDV).
What is Domestic violence ?
Domestic violence or family violence is a violent, abusive Or intimidating behaviour in a relationship. There are many types of domestic violence including social, physical, sexual and emotional.
For violence to be domestic, it doesn’t mean it occur in your home or in a relationship (with family or with partner )with occurs when someone close to you has power and control over you and this control for power can be expressed in different ways of violence and abuse.
Why Domestic Violence Awareness is Important ?
1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in once in their lifetime. It be physical, emotional, sexual or otherwise.
This is unbelievable but it’s true and the real fact is no one talk about it. Victim hide their story because of society and their poor thinking.
This is really touchy subject and nowadays there is a huge need of awareness against violence especially in today’s generation with the growing culture where we live in.
As a woman I really want that all the women in the society who are victim or not, should know about the domestic violence awareness.
BREAK THE SILENCE END THE VIOLENCE
