VPT & You: Domestic Abuse
A Chinese proverb says "women hold up half the sky," yet in many places around the world, girls and women are not valued, and worse are oppressed or abused. And abuse isn't limited to developing nations, unfortunately it can and does happen here in Vermont. The Vermont Network Against Domestic & Sexual Violence provides free, confidential resources for victims and their families.
