The Dating Violence Project
One in four women and one in twenty men are abused by, and afraid of, an intimate partner. Most victims are between the ages of 11 and 24 the first time they are abused by an intimate partner.Through a generous grant from Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Kentucky, OutrageUs has produced Love Struck: Dating Abuse Up Close, a 17-minute mini-documentary. The video and Love Struck Discussion Guide can be used as tools to prevent dating abuse among youth by making them aware of warning signs and what they can do if they are concerned about their own relationships or the relationships of classmates and friends.
OutrageUs thanks the courageous women who shared their stories with us to help other women and men to prevent dating abuse in their lives!!
