Program II: Visions of Women Organization on college campus : For College Students
Respondents reported a range of educational, career, and economic effects of IPV. Sixty-six percent said an abusive partner had disrupted their ability to complete education or training through tactics such as not allowing them access to money to pay for school, socially isolating the survivor, controlling or monitoring their mobility, using physical or sexual violence, and damaging or destroying personal property. The National Hotline for Domestic Violence reported that 43% of dating college women report experiencing violent and abusive dating behaviors including physical, sexual, tech, verbal or controlling abuse. Through this program we are teaching preventive measures to stay out of abusive relationships and be in healthy relationships by setting boundaries and knowing the signs of abuse. Young ladies also have the opportunity to receive a scholarship to help them with books and other necessities for school. Advocacy is also present giving girls the opportunity to build their resume with volunteer hours, be on their title IX school board, receive training on domestic violence and building their knowledge on the role as a domestic violence advocate.

#Beautiful People Campaign
Welcome to our Visions of Women Beautiful People campaign page. If you are on this page you are interested in being apart of the #BEAUTIFULPEOPLE campaign.
Visions of Women is raising awareness towards domestic violence by educating, supporting, and leading to healthy relationships. We have zero tolerance when it comes to abuse and we are doing what we can to make people aware of how violence is affecting people with mental health issues, depression, homelessness and so many more issues.
This campaign is standing for people who have been victims of violence or sexual assault. We are wanting people who are comfortable with telling their story to join the conversation during this campaign. There is so much stigma put on victims and survivors. And those stigmas lead people to think that it is the victim fault that they were raped or abused. But with this campaign we will recognize those false stigmas by recognizing statistics and sharing real stories about domestic violence.
This campaign will encourage people to get involved with raising awareness for all forms of abuse. By taking your Beautiful People picture you are standing for all people who have been affected by violence. No matter how much they have been broken down they will always be beautiful male or female and Visions of Women will support them.
We are asking you to be a part of this campaign because:
1. You may know someone who was a victim of violence or sexual assault.
2. You may want to learn more about the statistics on domestic violence and sexual assault.
3. And/or you would like to be involved and support the campaign.
Our Beautiful People campaign will speak volumes to those who cannot speak on the issues of violence or their experiences because of a stigma or they are embarrassed to talk about it.

Domestic violence is most common among women between the ages of 18 to 24. There was a friend that I knew that went through domestic violence and I did not like it. I would ask “Why are you taking this, you should leave”. But never tell a victim to leave their relationship because you do not know how they feel. Instead help them and give them tools they can use to leave when they are ready.
No matter how much abuse you have been through remember that you will always be beautiful.
If you ever need help do not hesitate to call the National hotline for domestic violence.
Here are some resources:

Domestic violence is wrong. It does not matter the gender, race, socioeconomic status, or religion. We are all beautiful people and deserve respect.
People suffer from domestic violence every day and The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence recorded that 20 people are abused every minute. Victims of abuse who are scared to leave hesitate to leave because their abuser controls and leaves them bruised on the inside mentally. It takes 7 times for a victim to leave their abuser for good.
As the abuser continues to down talk the victim the victim can feel vulnerable. The pain of being put down can cause mental health issues. Things like depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia can accumulate. No one deserves to go through domestic violence.
The following stats on Domestic Violence, Sexual Assualt, and Homicide, are cited from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV):
– Only 34% of people who are injured by intimate partners receive medical care for their injuries
– 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men in the United States has been raped in their lifetime
– 19.3 million women and 5.1 million men in the United States have been stalked in their lifetime
– A study of intimate partner homicides found that 20% of victims were not the intimate partners themselves, but family members, friends, neighbors, persons who intervened, law enforcement responders, or bystanders.
Did you know, in the time it took you to read this page, there were over 100 people abused?
Visions of Women will continue to raise awareness and support victims of abuse and we know that you will too.
