Breaking the cycle of abuse: “We have to get serious about not accepting domestic violence”

 The Curbside Chronicle - USA 22 February 2019

Oklahoma ranks third in the US for the number of women killed by men, according to the Violence Policy Center. In a startling 97% of these cases the woman knew her murderer; 61% of the women were wives, common-law wives, ex-wives or girlfriends of the offenders.
