This cause is important to me because I am a woman, because I have many sisters, a mother and a niece, because I believe that no one should have to tolerate violence because of their gender, because I read in the paper, discover on the news or watch a documentary where unbelievable oppression and injustice is committed against girls and women and there is very often not justice in the face of the injustice they face.

This cause is so important to me. I was a victim of domestic abuse in my past relationship. The emotional abuse was worse than getting physically abused. I remember being in the ER needing stitches because my ex threw a lighter at my face that split my lip through to the guns requiring 8 stitches, and I said it happened falling and hitting my face on the stair railing. One day I looked at shell of a woman I was going through the motions and couldn't take it anymore. I fought hard to leave...

One day I looked at shell of a woman I was going through the motions and couldn't take it anymore. I fought hard to leave and regain my life and me. Unfortunately, I was raped shortly after leaving my ex by a stranger in a place I thought I was safe. It has taken the love of my family and friends, counseling, and 7 years (since I left) to finally see the woman I was when I met my ex. Violence against women is unacceptable. I know more women who have been victimized in some way than women who haven't. Whatever I can do to help more women get out safely and for this epidemic to stop is my duty!

I hope you are doing well now. Victims of domestic abuse need to rebuild their bodies as well as their souls-- I hope you are doing all you can to stay healthy.

It hurts me to know that our state representatives and government have not protected the abuse men or women. Action are always taking AFTER a life have been taken. Why should it have to come to that point when you have the authority to save lives NOW?

We've "progressed" in terms of scientific discovery and technology, health care for all and maybe even bringing education to more people in every society. For a larger number than a decade ago, disposable incomes have risen, consumerism has propelled people towards social mobility. The achievements of mankind in our times is impressive indeed. But this one thing still can't seem to change: the way we (men and women) look at women. Every man born to this world came from a woman! Then why,...

But this one thing still can't seem to change: the way we (men and women) look at women. Every man born to this world came from a woman! Then why, oh why, do men feel it's OK to speak derogatorily about women, perpetuate double standards for women in the work place and in the home, and constantly beat women back with male-prescribed molds for what women should be, what their priorities ought to be and how they should come thus far and no further? Violence against women is not merely leaving colourful bruises like a canvas on a woman's body. Abuse is perpetuated verbally in the home and in society and through generations. Stop it!

I was abused from my first ex husband he was an addict and it's wrong, and abused by my great friend whom was teaching me to build me up and tare me down. I Think all women stand up and don't step down.
