As mentioned earlier this month. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so as a class we are tackling a question that many of you have asked throughout this course: what can we do as individuals to help or intervene?
Answer the following questions in your own words:
According to Chapter 8 on Intimate Partner Violence(IPV), where does IPV occur more often and why?
Do an Internet search for local resources and find what local resources are out there for women or people seeking help for intimate partner violence (if you do not reside in El Paso, do it for your where home is for you) ? Please Identify at least two resources and describe what they do or the types of help they provide (Please make sure to paste website address)
What can you do to prevent violence against women and girls? For ideas, go to the United Nations Equity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women Web site. Visit http://www.endvawnow.org/en/.
