September 12. Domestic violence has been in the news in the States alot lately. Here’s a little known secret: violence against women is just as big of a problem in Belize as it is in the States. In fact, the problem might even be worse here. And don’t think that the issue is only within the immigrant community or among the poor or uneducated. We see it here in all walks of life. Some people are better at sweeping it under the rug than others, that’s all. We hope that by calling attention to the problem & challenging our fellow Belizean men to stop hitting women, we can make a small difference. Remember, the relevant question in domestic violence is “Why did he do it?” and not “Why did she stay?”.
