Presentation Transcript


  • Violence Against Women defines domestic violence as a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that’s used by one partner to gain or maintain control over another intimate partner.
  • This behavior can include physical, sexual, emotional, psychological, and even economic abuse.

Preventing Domestic Violence

  • Tort law allows victims of domestic violence to sue their abusers in civil court, and possibly recover damages for their physical, economic, and emotional injuries.
  • Victims can also file for orders of protection, more commonly known as restraining orders, to prevent further abuse.

Punishing Domestic Violence

  • Domestic violence organizations can provide resources on how to identify the warning signs of abuse and how to exit a potentially dangerous relationship.
  • There is also information on how to know if a neighbor, co-worker, friend, or family member is in a possibly harmful domestic scenario and, if so, how you can help.
