Democratic Women Will Lead Rally Against Domestic Violence

Three women leaders of the Democratic Party of Oklahoma will lead a 10:00 a.m. rally against domestic violence on Thursday March 22, 2007 at the Oklahoma State Capitol. Lt. Gov. Jari Askins, Secretary of State Susan Savage, and State Senator Debbe Leftwich will share information about what Oklahomans can do to reduce the rate of female assault.

Domestic and Sexual Violence Awareness Day at the State Capitol is marked by people wearing the color red in memory of domestic violence homicide victims. Information displays will be available for viewing on the 4th floor rotunda from 9:00 a.m. to noon.

Oklahoma Democratic Party Chairman Lisa Pryor said, "we have a duty to protect our women from domestic violence and sexual predators. As we celebrate women's history month, Democrats are committed to funding services for assault victims and education to end the cycle of abuse."
