Doctors should empower, strengthen, and educate women on domestic violence. They should also ask if there is any violence going on in the home. Doctors should get to know their patients and not see them as a business transaction. Corporations and business owners should do the same hold seminars, webinars, presentations on domestic violence. Even if a woman doesn't speak up it will give her the courage to seek help and get out. Bosses hate when a woman calls out of work not knowing if her not feeling well is because she's in an abusive relationship.
