The Cost of Domestic Violence
Domestic violence doesn't stay home when its victims go to work. It can follow them, resulting in violence in the workplace.
Or it can spill over into the workplace when a woman is harassed by threatening phone calls, is absent because of injuries or is less productive because of extreme stress.
