Tackling Domestic Violence: Are We Winning or Losing?


October 9, 2014 :: Michele Montgomery, BSW, RSW
Moderated by Bev Muendel-Atherstone

This past September, NFL football star for the Baltimore Ravens, Ray Price, was suspended indefinitely after a video circulated showing him beating his (now) wife in an elevator. Sports commentators and others rushed to condemn, and it seemed unanimous – beating your wife will not be tolerated. It is clearly not fashionable or β€œin” to beat your wife.

Does this mean the struggle to overcome domestic violence has been won and can we expect to see such violence fade away to a distant memory?
