The month of October is designated Domestic Violence Awareness month.  Domestic Violence is a global issue and as the month come to a close it is very important that everyone continue to be mindful and continue to spread awareness so that one day this vicious cycle of abuse will end.

Each year thousands of women across the world die as a result of domestic violence and other forms of physical abuse.  There are thousands who continue to suffer on a daily basis.  The fight against domestic violence like the fight against drug addiction often seem like a losing battle but we must do everything in our powers to end this malady.

Domestic violence is the leading cause of death among women.  In many countries there are laws to protect women against abuse but sometimes these laws are not enforced.  In counties which enforce the laws the fight against domestic violence is still very complex as it is often very difficult to identify someone who is going to snap and kill his partner.  Often it is only the person suffering the abuse and those in the household where it is taking place who knows about it.

The violent nature of their partners leave some women trapped in their relationships immobilized by the fear of what will happen should they attempt to leave.  These fears are justified as statistics shows that seventy-five percent of women killed by their partners lost their lives after ending their relationships.

The journey to end domestic violence against women must begin with women being aware of thing to look out for in an abuser and take measures to avoid these situations.  Abuse of any form is not a normal part of a relationship and is therefore not acceptable.

"the Beatles didn't 'ave a monopoly on love, no-one does. It doesn't belong to John Lennon, it doesn't belong to Janis, it doesn't even belong to Jesus, love belongs to all of us. It's something we're all supposed to share," - Ami Bane, Pearls on the Road All work here is original and the copywrite of Angela Miller.
