Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Women’s Center Hosts Month of Events in Recognition of Domestic and Dating Violence
Alongside the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns, reports of domestic and dating violence have risen sharply across the world, so much so that many advocates and experts are beginning to refer to the violence as a “pandemic within a pandemic.”

Domestic violence, defined by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, threats and emotional abuse. The frequency and severity of domestic violence can vary dramatically. The NCADV reports that 43% of dating college women reported experiencing violent or abusive behaviors from their partner and on average, nearly 20 people per minute experience physical abuse by an intimate partner in the U.S., equating to more than 10 million people every year.

The Women’s Center will host events throughout October to raise awareness of the prevalence and impact of domestic and dating violence and share resources and strategies to support those who have experienced domestic violence.
