The Family Violence Prevention Fund has a wonderful new website and campaign called kNOw MORE.  kNOw MORE raises awareness about the dangerous connections between dating/sexual violence and reproductive health.  Read real women’s stories on the sites and find out how you can get involved.  This article on the website highlghts the dangerous consequences for women, especially teen girls:

            The Harvard School of Public Health’s exhaustive research on the lives of girls demonstrates
            that girls who are victims of violence from dating partners are four to six times more likely
            than non-abused girls to become pregnant, and eight to nine times more likely to attempt suicide.
