In early 1997, researchers questioned female patients and clients at eight rural clinics and 17 WIC centers in west central Minnesota. From that survey, about 21 percent of women reported having experienced physical, emotional or sexual abuse within the previous 12 months. Thirty-five percent reported suffering some form of abuse before age 18 and 37 percent said they experienced some form of violence after 18. The report also found income and educat)on weren't significant predictors of abuse, and that lack of social contact and not being within walking distance of a clinic increase the likelihood that a woman will be abused. Nearly half of the respondents who experienced violence said they didn't know, bout women's shelters, and morptfian half didn't know about crisis lines or community advocacy programs. "One of the biggest problems with reporting abuse in a small community," Blasdell says, "is fear of rumors and what people will say. People ask why an abused woman doesn't leave, when they really should be asking the abuser why he does what he does." (Blasdell uses "he" to identify abusers because research has shown between 92 and 98 percent of abusers are men.) "It's not a simple question why women don't leave an abusive relationship," Blasdell says. "There are a number of factors involved, including who will take care of the children and where she will stay. Fortunately, the law is now taking steps to let the woman stay in the home and eliminate the abuser." October is domestic violence and violence in the workplace awareness month, and Blasdell reminds women that the Ortonville center offers many free and .,oafule, ali sotices. They include assistance with., legal protection ' orders; rarrsportation to shelters and confidential appointments. She urges women with any  questions about domestic abuse to contact the Ortonville Women's Advocacy Resource Center at 839- 2331, or call the 24 hour crisis line at 1-800-974-3359. The center is located on the second floor of the Kaye Building on Ortonville's Main Street. 95 Ford F150 4x4 XLT '91 Ford F150 4x4 XLT Super Cab. Local Trade - V8 - Auto !
