I was watching the Katie Couric Show and Mariska Hargitay was her guest. Mariska is the Joyful Heart Foundation, which speaks to domestic abuse and violence against women. In her role on Law and Order, many women were writing her in regards to their own tales of abuse. These heartfelt letters had her create this foundation. She has partnered with the NO MORE Campaign, to end domestic violence and sexual assault. Their new ad campaign can be seen here: http://nomore.org/psas/ It is said that one in four women in a victim of domestic abuse or sexual assault. When I was thinking whether to write this posting, I thought, would anyone in PV relate to this? Then I was reading the local crime report and sure enough, a report of domestic abuse. This crime and transgression against women must stop. Have a look at the website and spread the word to increase awareness about this pervasive crime.
