To place your order

Violence against women is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior, and thus is part of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence results in physical injury, psychological trauma, and sometimes death. The consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and truly last a lifetime.

The 10 Warning Signs of an Abusive Relationship

1. When your friend and her husband or boyfriend are together, he acts very controlling and puts her down in front of other people.

2. He acts extremely jealous of others who pay attention to her, especially men.

3. She becomes quiet when he is around and seems afraid of making him angry.

4. She stops seeing her friends and family members, becoming more and more isolated.

5. She often cancels plans at the last minute.

6. He controls her finances, her behavior and even whom she socializes with.

7. You see him violently lose his temper, striking or breaking objects.

8. She often has unexplained injuries or the explanations she offers don't quite add up. (Sometimes you won't see any bruises, as batterers target their blows to areas that can be covered with clothing.)

9. She has casually mentioned his violent behavior but laughed it off as a joke.

10. Her child is frequently upset or very quiet and withdrawn and won't say why.
