Silent No More: Understanding the Prevalence of Domestic Abuse

Silent No More: Understanding the Prevalence of Domestic Abuse

At Scribbles & Stitches, our guiding principle is "Breaking the Silence and Empowering Your Voice." A crucial aspect of this mission is raising awareness about the prevalence of domestic abuse.
Domestic abuse is defined as a pattern of behavior in any relationship that seeks to gain or maintain power and control over another individual. Shockingly, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), almost 20 people per minute experience abuse in the United States. This adds up to over 10 million women and men being victims of some form of abuse each year.
To better comprehend these statistics, consider that 75% of the time, the victim is a woman, while 25% of the time, the male is a victim. This breakdown is deeply unsettling, underscoring the urgency of shedding light on the realities of domestic abuse.
Lets look at what is happening.
