Domestic Violence and Pop Culture

For this blog article, I particularly wanted to share media in pop culture that I believe shed awareness on domestic violence. From movies and songs to books and poetry, sometimes reflecting on media in pop culture can help break the stigma against domestic violence. This post could also serve as a trigger warning for those thinking about watching or listening to these.

Reviving Ophelia

Behind Closed Doors

Sleeping with the Enemy
