Abused Women

Not everyone has a happy ever after in a love relationship Their Prince Charming turns into a mean toad.  In some cases, the sweet damsel turns into a wicked witch, but men are physically stronger. So, let's talk about women.

Did you know there are only 1,500 shelters for abused and assaulted women in the United States? How about this? In America, there are 3,800 animal shelters. Hmmm. What does that say about us in the good ole US of A?

Between three and four million women in America are assaulted each year by husbands, ex husbands, boyfriends, partners, etc.

One estimate has it that a woman is beaten every twelve minutes in America. One of four will experience a life threatening event by a partner in their lifetime.



And it is real.

Why do women stay?

1. Most females have heard the stories. A woman leaves, and she ends up dead.

2. There aren't enough lawyers and shelters to help a woman in need. 

In 1925, Mattie found out the hard way that society blamed the woman if bruises appeared. "Be a better wife." That was the solution back in that day.
