Information for domestic and sexual violence programs

Anti-violence movements primarily grew out of the feminist movements of white, middle-class women in the 1960's and 70's, known also as the Women's Liberation Movement or Second Wave Feminist Movement. Expanding this framework continues to impact these movements and engage new communities in a more inclusive way.
