Default A DV resource for U.S. Women Abroad.

I heard about this site the other day on radio.
Its for US women overseas with domestic violence issues in their life
http://www.866uswomen.org/

thought it may be helpful to someone in need.

from what I heard the caller who gave the info found it very helpful. I hope no one needs it, but in case they do it sounded like a good resource.

Also, American women abroad should always have, on their person, the contact info for the nearest U.S. Embassy. The Embassy is a little outpost of U.S. soil and while beaureaucrats in the States tend to be ...uhm... less than enthusiastic about being helpful as often as not, those who have Embassy posts tend to be knowlegable and to truly want to be of service. They can smooth the way in dealing with local law enforcement, can often provide translators when needed and involving the Embassy ensures that you cannot just vanish.
