What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is violence that is taken place in the home and usually between partners.

Nearly 5.3 million intimate partner violence occur each year among U.S. women ages 18 and older. This violence results in nearly 2 million injuries and nearly 1,300 deaths (CDC 2003). Although domestic violence can happen to anyone it is most commonly happens to people below or at poverty line. When something like domestic violence occurs physical damage isn't the only thing that happens, many people who are assaulted suffer from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and even worse have suicidal thoughts or actions.

Who does my injustuce affect

Domestic violence occurs in every culture, country, and age group. It affects people from all socioeconomic, educational, and religious backgrounds and happens in both same-sex and male/female relationships.

The majority of victims of domestic violence are women, although men can also be victimized.

Women that are more vulnerable like teens, immigrants, gays, bisexual, transgender, people with disabilities, elderly women, and employees/colleagues are most likely to experience domestic violence.

why should it be created

There is way too many women in this world that are experienceing things things that no woman or men should have to deal with. Imagine walking up and going to sleep everyday scared because of the person sleeping next to you and the ne that you were supposed to live happily ever after with. There aren't enough places were people can get help from the "monster under the bed".

Where should it be

My domestic violence monument should be located in Dallas, Texas. I would put it there because it is the city with the 7th largest immigrant population. Dallas, Texas also has a lot of poverty areas. If the people around the area are aware of the violence problem then maybe we could help all the people that are stuck in the situation.

I want to help the women and men that are affect by domestic violence and give them the courage to leave and have a better life.
