Group organizes flash mob for domestic violence awareness
Posted on Tuesday, October 15th, 2013 at 9:19 pm
A flash mob was staged at Market Street in The Woodlands October 13 to “take a stand against domestic violence”.
Organizer Janice Warren, who has close ties to the Montgomery County Women’s Shelter, said October is an optimum time to stage a flash mob dedicated to the cause as October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
She said that according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in four women and their kids will be the victim of domestic violence.
A congressional staff report also stated that domestic violence is the primary cause of injury to women from 15 to 44 years of age.
Part of the exercise to reach out to domestic violence victims is talking about what constitutes domestic violence. According to Warren, this includes not only acts of physical violence but also psychological, sexual, or verbal attacks.
