Allstate Presents: Dollars and Cents — What You Think You Know About Domestic Violence Doesn’t Add Up

One in four women will be a victim of domestic violence in her lifetime. What may not be as familiar is a little known, invisible weapon found in nearly every domestic violence case. This weapon, stronger than any lock and key, is what silently holds so many women and children hostage in violent relationships. Why don’t more people — including corporations and foundations — recognize or understand this issue? Why aren’t more resources allocated to stop the cycle of violence? What is the least understood, but most frequently used weapon of choice found in 98 percent of domestic violence cases — and why don’t more people know about it? (Content produced by Allstate.)
