YWCA getting men involved in fight against domestic abuse
OKLAHOMA CITY – It’s a campaign that is good for Oklahoma and hopefully lifesaving for women in our state.
Oklahoma currently ranks 17th in the nation for the number of women killed by men.
YWCA officials said the sad fact is that boys who witness abuse like this are more likely to grow up to an abuser as well.
The “Engaging Men in the Fight Against Violence” campaign is underway at the YWCA to raise awareness.
They are hosting a breakfast Aug. 16 at St. Luke’s Methodist Church featuring two men who will tell their stories on domestic violence.
