Today’s post is honoring the women who have been targets of domestic violence, stalking or any type of sexual, physical, emotional, economic or psychological abuse.
Whether a woman has witnessed it in the street, had a friend or relative in an abusive relationship or was in one herself, I believe we’ve probably all witnessed violence against women at some level.
Women are victimized by intimate partners, social acquaintances and friends, family members and even strangers. It’s not unusual for violence or abuse to cause long term trauma related health effects. Healing is their mission.
Violence against a woman is a violation of her human rights.
