Violence

I'm doing a school project on Domestic Violence, and I need to interview someone that either works with battered women or knows about Domestic Violence. I was just wondering if anyone there would know of anyone that I could interview like shelters or anything thing like that or possibly if anyone there could answer my questions. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Rebecca

Thanks for choosing to do your report on such an important issue. While there are many important issues, domestic violence is one in particular that won't go away until we talk more about it. So your report will hopefully open up some of those lines of communications.

I'm not the best person for you to talk to directly about your report, but I do have suggestions:

  1. At FEMINIST.COM there is a database of women's groups around the country--included battered women's shelters. Here you can locate the shelter nearest to you. Perhaps you can contact that shelter to learn more. You might also check out our section of Violence Against Women links .
  2. Look at the information at V-Day which has violence against women resources and information. Perhaps this will lead you to the information you are looking for and individuals to potentially talk to.
  3. I have a good friend who volunteers at Victim Services (2 Lafayette Street, New York, New York 10007; Hotline: #212-577-7777). She runs a support group mostly for battered women. I could put you in touch with her. If you choose this option, please contact me and I will out you in touch with her.
