Sylvia's Story Sylvia endured years of domestic abuse before deciding to end her marriage.Â Fearful of her husband's reprisals, she sought help from local law enforcement.Â She was told to "go home and lock your bedroom door."Â Less than three hours later, she awakened to the sound of gunshots.Â Her estranged husband kicked in the door and shot her three times.Â Miraculously, she survived. This is Sylvia's Story.
Women are far more likely than men to be murdered by an intimate partner. Of those murdered by their intimate partner, 74% are women and 26% are men.
Rhonda, Davetta and Marva- Not all abuse victims are able to tell their stories. Sometimes, it's just too late. These three women were killed by their partners. Their stories are told by the loved ones who were left behind. Remember their names.

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Danielle Howle wrote two original songs for the Remember My Name project. Howle's songs "Ignition" and "Remember My Name" were written specifically for this collaboration and were recorded at ETVâ€™s Murray Studio. In order to make the lyrics as strong and realistic as possible, she watched a rough cut of one of ETV's documentaries, but also took it upon herself to interview several women about their stories.
This special ETV programming was awardeded the S.C. Medical Association Award of Excellence in Medical Reporting, a South Eastern Regional Emmy nomination, National Association of Black Journalist award, the South Carolina Broadcasters Association Richard M. Uray Award for Best Public Service Project and SCBA Star Award for Best Local Program.
