“I can tell you that after decades of giving talks on domestic violence, I have often been asked why women go back to their abusers. The one question I have never been asked in all this time is, “Why does he abuse her?”” -Dr. Karen Wilson

In the face of domestic violence and sexual assault many give advice to women about how to act or dress to avoid abuse. Such well meaning advice places the burden for stopping violence in the wrong place. Instead, we should inform every boy and man that one price tag for acceptance into any decent society is their respect and fair treatment of women.
