No_more_silence_against_domestic_violencFor today’s Humpday Hero, I would like to recognize two
women. Gale
and Jo
were both amazing advocates for battered women. If you or someone you know is the victim of
spousal abuse, here are some resources.

You can get away.

  1. When I used to work at the clinic, our OB/GYN/Women’s clinic was very into this cause for obvious reasons. We used to have a whole week where we would have the focus on this topic and there would be all kinds of events around the clinic. But we wore purple ribbons in memory of those lost to domestic violence and to call awareness to DV.

  2. I wish I could get my mom to look at some of this stuff. In Lebanon people really don’t get “domestic violence”. I used to think “why can’t a woman just leave? why is getting beaten up better?” but then it happens to someone close to you and it’s a whole different perspective.

  3. Shelli:
    I think it is so great that you all worked to raise awareness. How sad that the purple ribbons are even necessary.

    I haven’t been by your site much this week due to my busier schedule. But I hope that your mom is still planning to come over for a visit. Perhaps that might help to lend her a somewhate objective perspective on it.
    Unfortunately, the beating up aspect is only a part of the abuse. There is a whole psychological conditioning that goes along with the violence.
