~ Amazon Reader Reviews
From group events to one-on-one discussions, from social networks to personal emails, Nicole Zangara has virtually left no stone unturned when it comes to offering sound advice in a technologically driven world.
Ms. Zangara’s wide-ranging case studies illustrate that women, caught in a detrimental relationship, frequently become isolated and distant—thinking instead that somehow their particular situation, or set of circumstances, is unusual.
Surviving Female Friendships:
GRRL FEST (https://www.facebook.com/
· Every 36 minutes a police officer responds to a domestic violence incident where a child is present.
· Every 30 minutes a family is turned away from shelter due to lack of space.
· Every 19 minutes a domestic violence arrest is made.
· Every 5 days a domestic violence death occurs.
In light of these startling statistics, the stated goal of GRRL FEST is to change peer culture in order to prevent increasing violence against women and girls through education, entertainment, and a positive representation of women.
