Domestic Violence

One in four women will be victims of domestic violence

One in four women in the US will be victims of domestic violence in their lifetime. Physical and sexual attacks are often involved, but intimidation, emotional abuse and controlling behavior are all forms of domestic violence. And while 85% of victims are women, men can also be subjects of domestic abuse. Kenyatta Mickles, assistant professor of Clinical Law at the University of Cincinnati College of Law’s Domestic Violence and Civil Protection Order Clinic, Crisis Intervention Specialist with Women Helping Women, Katie Weber, and Victoria Parks, development director for the Women Crisis Center, discuss domestic violence, and available help for victims.
