FourFourOne is a weekly column looking at women and women’s issues.
This week, we are looking at a topic that is a topic we all struggle with.
In our recent Women’s March coverage, we covered women’s suffrage, gender equality, reproductive justice, and more.
As we look forward to the 2018 midterm elections, we thought it would be a great opportunity to look at some of the challenges women face today and ask the question: What can we do about it?
We’ve compiled a list of women’s causes and issues that are important to us and we want to share it with you.
If you are a woman, you have a voice and a chance to make a difference.
The issue of domestic violence and the way we deal with it, we hope, will become part of your everyday life, and we encourage you to support our work.
Here are some of our suggestions for women’s groups and organizations.
Domestic violence shelters.
Domestic Violence shelters are a vital resource for battered women.
A shelter can be your best ally, especially when you can’t afford a lawyer.
Many domestic violence shelters are run by churches or nonprofit organizations, and many women are able to access them through churches or by applying to local shelters.
There are many shelters in your area, and there are resources to help women navigate the process.
A domestic violence shelter can also be a place where you can learn about how to navigate domestic violence as a survivor, learn how to get help from the shelter staff, and learn about the laws in your community.

If your local shelter doesn’t have a program that provides financial assistance, a domestic violence support line can be set up by calling 1-800-799-SAFE.
The number for this number is 1-888-737-4357.
Women’s shelters can also provide a wide range of support services, including legal representation and referrals to other domestic violence services.
