Violence against Black Women should be addressed...



Just a very brief list of some of the women/girls of color that have lost their lives due to violence in the U.S.  

I had the opportunity to participate in the "One Billion Rising" V-Day campaign last year on Valentine's day, an organization started by Eve Ensler that mobilizes to bring awareness about the epidemic of violence toward women in girls of all races. Be it from Domestic Violence, Sexual Molestation, Child Abuse, etc..I brought my seven year old daughter along to participate as well. 

This is a great article I came across entitled "The Normalization of Violence of Black Women". Pretty thorough.
