One thought on “Silence encourages abuse”
Worse is when women finally get the courage to report the violence and they are arrested instead of helped.
Telling an abuser’s family or friends doesn’t always help. Abusers often have many faces. The one they show behind close doors and the ones they show to others. No surprise they lie to police, friends and family with such ease. When I talked to his friends and family about the abuse he isolated me from them. Told them we weren’t seeing each other anymore (he slept at my house every night…???) He told them I was crazy. All it ever got me was more abuse! And they had no idea they were actually participating in it.
We need to look after each other!
