Sexual assault in a relationship may be domestic violence http://bit.ly/nRyvPm #dv
Today's status update for October 20 is:
Pls RT Sexual Assault in a relationship may be domestic violence. http://bit.ly/nRyvPm #dvam
Victims of domestic violence will sometimes talk about sexual assault in a relationship as a one time event. Any time a pattern of abuse happens in a relationship it is domestic violence. It very rarely happens only one time. Along with other abuse in the relationship it can cause long term trauma to build up over time.
Can you remind victims that this behavior is not ok? It will only take a second to RT the message or post it as a status update to your Facebook page or other social media site.
