Last year I took a course in which we spent a brief time talking about domestic violence. Wanting to learn more, I signed up for a class this summer called Violence With Women and Girls. This class has opened my eyes to a lot of things I was not aware of or just chose to ignore in the past. Violence in relationships is real. Physical abuse, sexual abuse...the list goes on and on. In fact, did you know a woman who is raped is more likely to be raped by an aquaintance as opposed to a stranger? I started this project to raise awareness about domestic and dating violence among teens and young adults. It's a big problem that nobody is really talking about. It's time for someone to say something.
