A beauty salon from my hometown is bring sponsored by the women’s criwas center for a findraiser for national domestic violence awareness month. I did some research found your website, and think it’s great! I have an ex-boyfriend who was abusive, and I have vowed to myself to never put up with that again! I got out before anything too serious could happen, thankfully, but I think about it and the fact that he was abusive was serious enough. I should have gotten out before I did. Now that I’m out, and in college, I’m majoring in social work and possibly minoring in women’s studies. I’m anti-abuse period! Great website!
