Domestic Violence in the United States
Although the Unites States is considered to be one of the democratic countries in the word, domestic and family violence still
represents an issue of concern in the twenty-first century. According to statistics, about 10 million people are victims of some kind of domestic violence every year (Huecker, King, Jordan, & Smock, 2022). Real statistics, however, might be higher than the official stats state as some victims do not want or are frightened to talk about it or simply some people do not realize, due to lack of information, that they in reality are the victims of domestic violence. That is the main reason why it is important to raise awareness about this issue.
It is important to clearly identify what domestic violence is, what are main signs of domestic violence and what can be done when
facing the problem.
