It was day two of the third annual Violence Against Women Conference on Wednesday as several guest speakers spoke on a variety of issues regarding abuse against women.

Daisy Lopez from Friendship of Women says that domestic abuse, sexual assault and even marital rape are the main crimes against women in the Valley, "The primary goal of ours is to raise awareness in our community by bringing light to the situation of domestic violence, sexual assault in our community and to train and properly educate our first responders who deal with these issues on a daily basis."

Mrs. Lopez says they're trying to bring to light the issue because new laws aren't being utilized.
