Domestic violence 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.
Unfortunately, one in four women will be impacted by domestic violence during their lifetime, with three women being killed by their intimate partner each day and more than 15 million children being exposed to domestic violence each year, all in the United States.
S2F2 can’t end domestic violence alone. This year, we’re asking you to join in our efforts. It’s our hope that every time you see or wear the color purple you will think of the countless victims, and that you will all take a moment to familiarize yourself with the plaguing epidemic that is domestic violence.
If you are in a domestically violent situation and in immediate danger please call 911. If you are in a place that is safe to talk, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE. They will help assess your situation and link you to your nearest domestic violence program for help.
