“MONSTERS” portrays the alarming impact of domestic violence on families and children, as seen through the eyes of a young girl. Studies suggest that between 3.3 million and 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence each year. The video notes that girls who witness abuse are more likely to be abused later in life, and boys are twice as likely to abuse their own partners — “because that’s the world they know.” MONSTERS is produced and funded by the Verizon Foundation and supported by the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
