  1. Thanks for your compelling post on some of the best resources out there for domestic violence. The voices and stories of women who are involved in these relationships abusive relationships should not be kept silent.

    Unfortunately, dating violence often includes birth control sabotage and other forms of sexual coercion that all too often go unrecognized as forms of abuse. I am working on an initiative from the Family Violence Prevention Fund called kNOwMORE (our Web site is http://knowmoresaymore.org) to make the link between relationship violence, coercion, and reproductive health consequences. I hope that we’ll be able to work together!
