    Despite nationwide efforts to curb domestic violence, recent evidence suggests that the problem isnt going away anytime soon. The Los Angeles Police Department released statistics in January that showed violent crime actually increased 14.3% the past year, the majority stemming from domestic violence. The New York City Housing Authority released late last year that showed domestic violence to be on the rise in public housing, with nearly twice the number of reported incidents from 2009 to 2013. And in Seattle, the local YWCA provided services to 10,515 abused women in 2014 an increase of nearly 10% from the year...

The Post and Courier (Charleston, SC) won the 2015 public service prize for a seven-part series titled "Till death do us part.

    Children living in unwed-mother homes are more likely to witness domestic violence than children growing up with their married mother and father, says a new analysis. The finding is counterintuitive since mothers who have never married would appear to be less likely to get into fights at home with someone. However, data show that the rate of witnessing domestic violence among children living with never-married mothers was 116 children per 1,000, six times higher than the rate for children in intact families, said psychologist Nicholas Zill, who published his findings at the Institute for Family Studies in Charlottesville, Va., in...

Brzezinski's blunder came in the context of the panel's discussion of the NFL's domestic violence mess. Arguing that football is a violent game and that "there's a connection" with what happens at home, Mika continued, "domestic violence on Super Bowl Sunday. We've seen the numbers. Why is that?" Actually, Brzezinski has apparently not seen the numbers, since that myth has been thoroughly debunked, often by organizations fighting domestic violence,...

    On ESPNs SportsCenter earlier this week, espnW columnist Kate Fagan argued that the big picture in the controversy surrounding former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rices domestic violence allegations. According Fagan, the problem needs to be tackled at the so-called grassroots level when men are in their formative years. Well, I think right now we're talking so much about firing Goodell or punishments. You know, should it be a three game, a two game, a six game, a full year ban? But I think that's a little reactive and not proactive. Domestic violence is something that happens in anger, in...

    Did the NFL suspend Ray Rice indefinitely after he was given an initial 2 game suspension because A.) they saw the video inside the elevator, or B.) because we saw the inside-the-elevator video? If it is because of A, then why did they formulate a 6 game suspension to be followed by banning for a second offense and not apply the 6 game rule to Ray Rice? If this is because the inside-the-elevator video surfaced, then will the NFL have a system for those who are caught by video and those not caught by video? In the end, IMHO, Ray...
