Women’s Rights in the Home

Don't let DV into your house

Don’t let DV into your house


Domestic Violence and the War on Women is continuing. There are some Federal laws which protect women and some are state laws. Evidence, sentencing, police involvement can differ from state to state. In Pennsylvania, for instance there are firm laws to protect the victim. However, in Norristown, Pa. victims are penalized for calling the police for help.

Yes, I said for asking for protection, they are breaking the law.

There are three strikes in Norristown, Pa.  If you are abused and call for help three times. No matter how serious your abuse is. The police will send your landlord or mortgage holder a letter asking them to throw you out due to the Three Strikes Rule. Nope, you didn’t misunderstand. I call it, let’s jump on the victim whether female or male. Let us increase the suffering. The city ordinance specifically includes “domestic disturbances” as behavior that gets victims thrown out of their homes.


A woman recently feared losing her home so much that even when her abuser attacked her with a brick, she was too afraid to make a call to the police. He later stabbed her neck and she was still to frightened of being homeless to call. He would get the house. After a housing court refused to order an eviction, the ACLU stepped in to protect the victim. The city backed off. The city of Norristown does encourage the battering of its citizens with this type of laws.


Norristown is not the only city in the country have passed “nuisance ordinances” or crime.  Milwaukee’s Domestic Nuisance Ordance showed violence was the third most common reason that police citation. This is far above drug crimes, property damage, or trespassing.  Women of color in our country suffer the most from these bizzare citations.


My suggestion is to go to your local police department and ask what the laws are where you live. If there are these type of laws, get involved. Women working together can accomplish anything they put their minds to. So remember: YOU CAN’T BEAT A WOMAN.

    There is never a time that violence of any kind is appropriate … Especially .. violence associated with love or sex should be condemned … And … An act of violence against women is totally unacceptable …

    Incredible. I can not imagine how these “laws” are justified. Violence is never, repeat…never, acceptable. Thank you for call attention to the ongoing abuse of one person against another and society’s continued tolerance of this or even participation in it. hugs, pat

    My eldest grandson participated in his first karate competition at the age of 5. In his first “fight” he had to “fight” a little girl, at least a head shorter than he was. The poor boy would not lift his hands to defend himself or to “attack” her! She knocked him down to the joy and laughter of the entire crowd of people. He just sat down with his head bowed down and stared at his feet. When he was allowed to join his mommy he said to Vic “Mommy, she is a girl. I am not allowed to hit a girl”…. I have never been more proud in my life. Thank you for your tireless fight against abuse!

    There is a good argument for taking criminal law making powers away from local government and giving it to central government. This idea goes against my ideas of localisation, but in some instances centralisation of laws is a good action to take.
