INFORMATION FOR AN ABUSED WOMAN

Survival - Before an Attack: If you are living in an abusive situation, there are some practical measures you can take to protect yourself. It may seem strange to think in terms of preparing for an attack ahead of time, but that can be the very time that you are clear headed, not upset, and capable of organizing some protective measures for yourself. First, let someone know what is going on. If a friendly neighbor is aware that your spouse is abusing you, she or he may be able to call the police for you when you are unable to do so.

One out of every four women in this country will suffer some kind of violence at the hands of her husband or boyfriend. Very few will tell anyone — not a friend, a relative, a neighbor, or the police. Victims of domestic violence come from all walks of life — all cultures, all income groups, all ages, all religions. They share feelings of helplessness, isolation, guilt, fear, and shame. All hope it won't happen again, but often it does.

The victim will learn the roles of both victim and abuser simultaneously and may enact either at a later date depending upon situational factors.

In March 1993, as part of a national movement to form domestic violence councils, the State Justice Institute sponsored a national conference in San Francisco. All 50 states were represented at the conference. In August, 1993, following that historic event, the Hon. Wallace P. Carson, Jr., Chief Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court, called a statewide multi-disciplinary meeting to discuss the present state of Oregon’s response to family violence and to form a state-wide Oregon Domestic Violence Council. Participants recognized the need for a system wide approach to the problem of family violence, while knowing that effective change must also be implemented on the local level. Two representatives of the Lane County community attended the statewide meeting, Jennifer Inman, Assistant Director at Womenspace, and Caroline Forell, Professor at the University of Oregon School of Law. They returned enthusiastic about starting a local council in Lane County. Two organizational meetings were h
