Domestic violence is a serious issue that affects millions of people around the world. It can take many forms, including physical, emotional and psychological abuse. Domestic violence can have devastating consequences for victims and their families, such as depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Unfortunately it often goes unreported because victims are too afraid to come forward due to feelings of shame or guilt. We must all work together in order to break this cycle of abuse by raising awareness about domestic violence and providing support services for those affected by it. Everyone has the right to feel safe in their own homes; no one should ever be subjected to fear or intimidation from someone they love!

Gender violence is a serious issue that affects people of all ages, genders and backgrounds. It can take many forms including physical, sexual or psychological abuse between intimate partners or family members. Unfortunately, it often goes unreported due to fear of repercussions from the abuser or embarrassment on the part of the victim. In order to better understand this problem and prevent it from occurring in our communities we need to be aware of its prevalence and have open conversations about what constitutes gender-based violence.
