Naomi Judd, known as half of country music’s mother/daughter duo, The Judds, shares her inspiring story of overcoming the odds through optimism & hard work. “Growing up I’d never even heard of domestic violence,” said Judd in her 1993 autobiography, “Love Can Build a Bridge”. Naomi and her young daughter experienced domestic violence when a former boyfriend of Naomi’s threatened, stalked and assaulted Naomi. She recounts, “I wish there had been a shelter for battered women in West Hollywood in 1973.”

Thousands more suffered from physical and emotional abuse, or bear the very real scars of witnessing violence at home.”
