Love Does Not Hurt: Encore
Back for 2 Nights Only
"Love Does Not Hurt..."
stage play and art exhibit
** 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.
**In Chicago more than 1 in 10 girls reported that a boyfriend or girlfriend had hit, slapped or physically hurt them on purpose, with Black girls reporting the highest rates of dating violence.
love does not hurt...is a synergetic and multimedia performance and art exhibit that unapologetically addresses violence against womyn, by speaking healing and love into existence. Both men and womyn are given voice on the inner most details in this pattern of abuse. There is no finger pointing, but the empowered evolution of five couples journeying through intimate partner violence.
Domestic Violence (DV), also referred to as domestic abuse and intimate partner violence, occurs when a family member, romantic partner, or ex-partner attempts to physically or psychologically/emotionally dominate another. According to statistics from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime and 85% of all domestic violence victims are women.
Domestic Violence affects all Americans, regardless of race, gender, socioeconomic status or spiritual practice. However, the "face" of DV is disproportionately becoming that of the African-American woman, where black women experience intimate partner violence at rates 35% higher than their white counterparts and heartbreakingly, intimate partner homicide is the leading cause of death for African-American women ages 15-45.
Domestic violence information and continued dialogue is available online at AquaMoon's blog http://intheroundsistacipher.blogspot.com/.
**Nationally, intimate partner homicide is the leading cause of death for African American women Ages 15-45.
