I Am Strong

Women who have experienced domestic violence desire more for themselves and don't want to be thought of as a statistic, or to be stereotyped.  Domestic violence affects everyone of all economic and educational backgrounds, and all nationalities and genders. Of the population that experience family violence, 70 percent are women.
