7 Strong Latinas Who Overcame Domestic Violence

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a time to bring awareness to the issue in hopes of ending the cycle of abuse. One in four women are victims of domestic violence at some point in their lives, with 20 percent of women in Hispanic households suffering partner violence. It's up to us to stop the abuse! If you or someone you know is being abused, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).
Take a look at some amazing Latinas who overcame abuse and are bringing awareness to the issue:
In 2012, the 19-year-old singer revealed she had been in an abusive relationship, and even opened up about it in her blog. "I was involved in an abusive and dangerous relationship," she wrote. "I was in this relationship for a year and a half, and that was one of the most painful times in my life." Jasmine went on to make a music video for her song, "Didn't Mean It," which she said would hopefully serve as a PSA for domestic violence.
