Domestic Violence Awareness Month Blog Carnival

Why We’re Writing: There are so many misconceptions about domestic violence — what it is, who’s affected, how easy or difficult it is to leave the situation, how “getting out” is different from “starting to heal,” etc. — it’s so important to put the truth into words and to share it.

If you’d still like to submit, I will be adding entries as I can during the day (western US time) on Saturday.

Thanks to everyone who contributed writing and everyone who spread the word about this event!

[Due to the topic here, I'm going to put a trigger warning here for domestic violence, including verbal, emotional, and sexual abuse.]

    Thank you so much for organizing this. So much power and strength, gathered right here. I hope so many people, both women and men, see this and realize that change is in their reach.

  5. Thank you for this. Domestic violence is my personal platform going into the Miss International pageant next year. These are helpful resources.

  6. I am so happy I found this page. If only I had found it months earlier, I would have been a little more fortunate; nonetheless, as a victim of DV, I fully support speaking out against DV and taking every precaution to safeguard yourself. You never suspect it can happen to you. Better to be safe than sorry…
