Domestic violence has been successfully eradicated in several communities around the globe due to civic and community action. Some communities view acts of violence against a partner or household member as an act of violence against the society as a whole. Moreover, community organizations fronting the rights of women across the globe have successfully changed national policies that have greatly reduced domestic violence.
There is an increasing awareness of domestic violence and child abuse in societies across the country. To save the victims of domestic violence that still endure physical, sexual, financial, or emotional torture, we should increase the capacity of the community to assist victimized individuals and families. Civic and community organizations should collaborate and participate in making leadership decisions that affect victims of domestic violence.
