“It’s hard to know exactly how common domestic violence is because people often don’t report it,” says Emily Iazzetti for KWTX-TV News 10 in this broadcast from October 4, 2010. “To encourage women to talk about that abuse, Empire Beauty Schools has made it possible for us to talk to Jeanine Pirro. She’s a TV court judge and also a women’s rights advocate.”

Pirro, who started one of the first domestic violence units in the nation as a young prosecutor in 1978, discusses the prevalence of abuse. “The truth in this country is that one in four women will experience domestic violence in the course of their lifetime,” says Pirro. “It is pervasive, but it is also hidden.”

To fight domestic abuse, Empire Beauty Schools held their annual National Day of Beauty on Saturday, October 9th, 2010. All of the proceeds from any procedure at any Empire campus will be given to local domestic violence shelters. The Day of Beauty is part of Empire Beauty Schools’ “Empire Gives Back” ongoing charitable initiative
