Tweets explore relationship between women’s rights and ability of victims to escape domestice violence

During October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month, SHARE, Inc. will post thought-provoking tweets that explore the relationship between women’s rights and the ability of battered women to escape domestic violence.

Topics covered in the timeline include women’s right to vote, women’s access to contraception, the development of commissions recommending improving conditions for women in the workplace, and other breakthroughs, along with the development of domestic violence programs and changes in the criminal justice system, all illustrating that women’s rights and freedom from domestic violence go hand in hand.

The topic provides a basis for discussions about domestic violence programs as systems changes agents, and whether, at this stage, we are making progress, maintaining the status quo, or losing ground.
