Preventing domestic violence
Most women welcome inquiries, but doctors and nurses rarely ask about it Papers pp Domestic violence can be physical, sexual, or psychological. Physical and sexual violence by an intimate partner are common problems, affecting 20-50% of women at some stage in life in most populations surveyed globally. Between 3% and 50% of women have experienced it in the past year. Domestic violence has a profound impact on the physical and mental health of those who experience it. As well as injuries, it is associated with an increased risk of a range of physical and mental health problems and is an important cause of mortality from injuries and suicide.

NAAG Commemorates National Domestic Violence Awareness Month
October, 2002 The National Association of Attorneys General joins the nation in commemorating October 2002 as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. As the chief legal officers of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealths of Puerto Rico and the Northern Mariana Islands, and the territories of American Samoa, Guam, and the Virgin Islands, Attorneys General are committed to ending domestic violence and helping women and children whose lives are devastated by violence. On October 15, NAAG will sponsor a Conference on Multidisciplinary Responses to Family Violence in Washington, D.C. The event will feature law enforcement officials, health care providers, faith-based organizations, and experts from several other disciplines who will address family violence from diverse perspectives. A number of my colleagues also are highlighting this important month with a number of initiatives and activities designed to increase public’s awareness in their own communities. Here’s just a sampling of some of these events:

North Carolina Domestic Violence Orders Statistics
In 1995 and 1996, the North Carolina General Assembly enacted laws strengthening existing NC domestic violence laws, primarily the Domestic Violence Act found in the North Carolina General Statutes Chapter 50B. Effective April 1, 1996, the Sheriff of each county is required to provide for the immediate entry of all Domestic Violence Protective Orders into the State Bureau of Investigation's (SBI) Division of Criminal Information Domestic Violence Order File. Two types of Domestic Violence Orders may be issued: Ex Parte Orders and Protective Orders. Ex Parte Orders are usually issued by the District Court judge, but may be issued by a magistrate if authorized by the Chief District Court judge. Ex Parte Orders protect alleged victim and minor children prior to a domestic violence court hearing. These Orders may also provide limited emergency relief. If issued by a magistrate, the Ex Parte Orders are valid for 72 hours from filing for relief, or until the end of the next day on which district court is in session in the county, whichever is earlier. (If the Order is issued by a magistrate, a hearing is scheduled before a District Court judge who may issue another Ex Parte Order.) If the Ex Parte Order is issued by a District Court judge, the Order is valid for the period of time specified in the Order, which can be up to one year.

National Association of Attorneys General Urges "Zero-Tolerance" Policy on Violence Against Women
WASHINGTON. Attorney General Tom Miller and the National Association of Attorneys General today declared a commitment to a "zero tolerance policy on violence against women." The Association adopted a resolution today advocating a strong new package of steps targeting domestic abuse in Iowa and across the nation. The Attorneys General called for recognizing "stay-away" protective orders across state lines, enhancing penalties for persons who batter partners in front of children, and victim-counselor confidentiality. "Ninety-four Iowans have been killed in domestic abuse murders since January 1, 1990, including ten children," Miller said. "And that's just the tip of the iceberg. We know of thousands more Iowans who are injured or terrorized every year, and countless more cases go completely unreported. It's a major problem and we have to keep up the pressure to solve it." The resolution adopted at the spring meeting in Washington of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) called for action at the state and national level:
  • Full funding of the federal Violence Against Women Act, which created grants for local law enforcement efforts and barred batterers under protection orders from crossing state lines to pursue partners.
