Who We Are


The National Institute of the Study of Violence developed out of a 12 year study of violence against women. The study was conducted to chronicle violence against women in this country and the world. During this 12 year period more than 5,000 American women were reported murdered, 1,942 of these women are discussed in the book Murdered Voices.
The National Institute of the Study of Violence is an organization whose primary goal is to prevent violence against women and children. We believe this objective can be reached through research, collection and the dissemination of information throughout the country. The National Institute of the Study of Violence’s main focus is prevention. Prevention involves changing the attitudes of men and women regarding our personal safety and right to self-determination and the right of women to be fully educated. When a woman is educated she can provide for herself. She does not have to marry if she does not want to marry. Educated women will more ready seek a divorce knowing they have the education to care for her children. Educated women do not fall into prostitution to support themselves. Prevention also involves fathers changing their attitude toward the education of their daughters. Everyone is entitled to an education and if money is provided for a male child to be sent to a university then money should be provided to send a female child to a university. A male child is no better than a female child. Prevention also involves people becoming involved, take notice of your neighbors. Take notice of how children are treated at school. Report your abusive neighbor to the police anonymously if necessary. But by all means report him.
We feel that our work is important, and will make a difference in the community. Our goal is to focus attention on the violence experienced by women in America. Everyone is an interested party in the cause we are fighting because violence affects every segment of our society. . The prevention of violence directly affects the stability of families and the productivity of the nation. There are very few companies in America that can say none of their employees have ever been murdered.
