Recognizing Signs of Domestic Violence and Reaching Out to Victims
Many women suffer the consequences of domestic violence and are at a loss as to what to do or where to go. They often hide signs of domestic abuse from friends, family, and co-workers, and their situation worsens due to fear and embarrassment. Domestic abuse isn’t limited to the home and can often cross over into the woman’s workday and appear in many different forms. Threatening phone calls, harassing emails, and workplace stalking are all forms of domestic abuse. Stopping domestic violence in the workplace means first identifying and then preventing scenarios before they escalate.
