Domestic Violence Awareness Month

The violence that occurs between two people who are in an ongoing relationship is referred to as domestic violence. It can be physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. Nationwide, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of physical violence by an intimate partner during some point in their life. The Oklahoma Domestic Violence Fatality Review Board (DVFRB) determined that 109 Oklahomans lost their lives as a result of domestic violence in 2012. Domestic violence can happen to anyone, male or female, at any time.
