November 25 is the United Nations International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women in all countries around the world.
Break the Silence!
Your Life is on the Line!
No one has the right to hurt you, control you, or make you feel afraid — even if they say they do it because they love you.
Abuse takes many forms and can change over time.
It usually starts of as emotional and becomes physical later.
You’re not alone. Even though it may feel like you’re alone, other women have been there and have made it through safely. Many women around the world are facing similar situation — regardless of their age, race, ethnicity, income, or education level.
Some stayed and succeeded, other left so as to succeed. Ultimately, life is sacred and is paramount.
Breaking the silence is the first step towards breaking the chain of domestic violence.
