Ending Violence Against
Women & Children

(Click on * for free 8.5 X 11 PDF to print)

"The Violence Against Women Act protects the lives of tens of thousands of domestic violence victims. But the U.S. must also support gender equality around the world, and that means acknowledging that some nations we consider to be our friends are no friends to women. For example, domestic violence is not regarded as a crime in Saudi Arabia. The United States should not have 'normal' relations with nations that treat women as second-class citizens."
-- Senator Barbara Boxer

Nobody believes that domestic violence kills and nobody believes it is detrimental to children. This world has got to wake up. To me, if there is domestic violence, if the children see it or hear it, that to me is detrimental. Batterers should not have rights to children.”
-- Denise Brown

* Sexual, racial, gender violence and other forms of discrimination and violence in a culture cannot be eliminated without changing culture.
--
Charlotte Bunch

 

We can all take responsibility for helping to bring about change, and keeping our friends and colleagues safe from domestic violence”
-- Charles Clarke

* The main goal of the future is to stop violence. The world is addicted to it.
-- Bill Cosby

"For most of recorded history, parental violence against children and men's violence against wives was explicitly or implicitly condoned. Those who had the power to prevent and/or punish this violence through religion, law, or custom, openly or tacitly approved it. …..The reason violence against women and children is finally out in the open is that activists have brought it to global attention."
-- Riane Eisler

“Domestic violence causes far more pain than the visible marks of bruises and scars. It is devastating to be abused by someone that you love and think loves you in return. It is estimated that approximately 3 million incidents of domestic violence are reported each year in the United States.”
-- Dianne Feinstein

“Domestic violence does not only happen to adults. Forty percent of girls age 14 to 17 report knowing someone their age who has been hit or beaten by a boyfriend, and approximately one in five female high school students reports being physically and/or sexually abused by a dating partner.”
-- Dianne Feinstein

"If the numbers we see in domestic violence were applied to terrorism or gang violence, the entire country would be up in arms, and it would be the lead story on the news every night."
-- Rep. Mark Green

No woman has to be a victim of physical abuse. Women have to feel like they are not alone.
-- Salma Hayek

Every woman who thinks she is the only victim of violence has to know that there are many more.
-- Salma Hayek

If you give me any problem in America I can trace it down to domestic violence. It is the cradle of most of the problems, economic, psychological, educational.
-- Salma Hayek

There is a subconscious way of taking violence as a way of expression, as a normality, and it has a lot of effects in the youth in the way they absorb education and what they hope to get out of life.
-- Salma Hayek

* As a Goodwill Ambassador for UNIFEM, I’ve learned that violence against women knows no boundaries. Join me in helping women worldwide who have suffered unthinkable violence.
-- Nicole Kidman

Violence against women is an appalling human rights violation. But it is not inevitable. We can put a stop to this.
-- Nicole Kidman

“One in three women may suffer from abuse and violence in her lifetime. This is an appalling human rights violation, yet it remains one of the invisible and under-recognized pandemics of our time.”
-- Nicole Kidman

* There can be no better measure of our governance than the way we treat our children, and no greater failing on our part than to allow them to be subjected to violence, abuse or exploitation.
-- Jessica Lange

* "We have to promote human solidarity, avoid indifference, and play a part with society in the solution of the problem of violence..."
-- Shakira

"The schools play an important role when it comes down to protecting children against violence.Violence is one of the principal reasons why children don't go to school. It's also one of the causes of the alarming school dropout rates."
-- Shakira

* "We know that many boys and girls leave school because of poverty, because they have to work. However, there are an important number of children who abandon their studies because of the abuses they're subject to by teachers and their own parents."
-- Shakira

Child abuse casts a shadow the length of a lifetime.”
-- Herbert Ward
