Alaska is a beautiful place, known for its enticing scenery and charm. There is, unfortunately, an uglier side of the state, however. According to the Juneau Empire, 58 percent of Alaskan women have been victims of sexual or intimate partner violence.
While such a statistic is startling, it illuminates the need for greater awareness. Abusive behaviors may precede domestic violence in some cases. By watching out for these behaviors, it may be possible to identify cases before they go too far.
