Did You Know…

Wear Purple - Love is not Abuse1 in 3 families are affected by domestic violence. Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors — physical, sexual, psychological, and economic coercion — used by one intimate partner against another (adult or adolescent) to gain, maintain, or regain power and control in the relationship. Batterers use of a range of tactics to frighten, terrorize, manipulate, hurt, humiliate, blame, often injure, and sometimes kill a current or former intimate partner.

On Wednesday, Oct. 19th, I’ll be wearing purple to help spread the word that abuse is not love. (Check out my fashionable picks for HerCampus Fordham here.)
