Why it's news.

| 1 Comment

Some of you in this corner of the world might have come across news that a spokesman for South Carolina’s governor has been arrested and charged with criminal domestic violence and malicious injury to real property. Will Folks allegedly kicked in the door of the apartment he shares with his fiance and attacked her. His fiance did not want to prosecute Folks for the alleged abuse.

Why is this news? Is it because domestic violence is so rare and terrible that an incidence of it amazes us–how could people abuse their loved ones? Of course not. If that were the reason, our newspapers and tv shows would have daily features on the topic. This is news because it involves the hint of political scandal–it’s nothing more than a potential political loss.

Unfortunately, although domestic violence and abuse is terrible, it is not rare in our communities. An average of three women a day are killed by their husbands or boyfriends, and many more face non-fatal physical, emotional, and sexual abuse by their partners. While this problem is not limited to violence against women, women are the majority of domestic violence victims. (Fact Sheet)

Which brings me to one of my new links in the Participate! section. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is up for reauthorization this September. VAWA is a federal law that provides funding for services to domestic violence victims, among other things. 700 Women stands for the number of women who are assaulted or raped each day by their partners and is part of Amnesty International’s campaign to Stop Violence Against Women. They are organizing support for the reauthorization of VAWA, and if you click on the link you’ll be taken to their site where you can sign their petition and learn more about how you can help.

Of course, you can help victims of domestic violence in another way–contact your local domestic violence shelter or coalition and ask to volunteer. Not all volunteer duties include working directly with victims, so if that is something you would not be comfortable with there probably is still plenty you could do. Or you could make a donation–many would accept clothing, toiletries, or cell phones as well as moolah.

Other resources are the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the แจก เครดิต ฟรี sbobetNational Domestic Violence Hotline. The national hotline number is: 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or 1-800-787-3224 (TTY). These are 24-hour hotlines. Be safe.
