    Apps That Could Help Save Your Life

    Important: With the exception of Aspire, most domestic violence-related apps are easily identified as such on one’s phone, posing a risk for survivors who are under scrutiny by an abuser. Please download only if you feel it’s safe to do so. While DomesticShelters.org does not have an app for this reason, it is mobile-enabled meaning you can access the website through a browser on your smartphone. Simply remember to clear your browser history and close out of your web browser each time... read more

    Ask Amanda: How Do I Co-Parent with an Abuser?

    3. All communication should be in writing, preferably by email or programs designed for parents that capture all communication. Try an app like Our Family Wizard or Talking Parents. “All communication is done through these apps so it’s as easy as email, but no one can alter it later and there are time stamps to show when someone reviews it,” says Kerns. Phone calls from the other parent while the children are in your custody are another time when the abuser can harass the other parent.... read more

    Ask Amanda: What Is Femicide?

    Q: What is femicide? I keep hearing that term being used when I read about domestic violence—is it some new buzzword? – Amy M. Great question with a disheartening answer, Amy. Femicide is not a new word, unfortunately. For a long time, women have been killed simply because of their gender, which is what femicide means, although some definitions of femicide encompass any murder of women and girls. An article in Elite Daily goes so far as to describe it as “the sexist violence... read more

    When Abuse Goes from Shouting to Striking

    There’s no medical report. No bruises or black eye or broken bone to signal what’s happening behind closed doors. But that doesn’t mean the abuse is any less damaging. Verbal, emotional and psychological abuse take many forms—put-downs and power plays, bullying and blaming, trivializing and threatening—but its end game is the same: to dominate and control. While dangerous enough on its own, these forms of abuse and others often escalate into physical violence.... read more
