It is estimated that 35 per cent of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or s****l intimate partner violence or s****l violence by a non-partner at some point in their lives.
somebody you know and love might be one, but they stay mum all this time because they are afraid to be stigmatized, or worse, silenced once they speak up. we need to create a safe space for women where they can be vulnerable and draw strength from each other to stand up for themselves.
women are incredible beings who are capable to do so many great things and weather all kinds of trauma when they have a strong-knit, loving community to fall back on - and it all starts from one person. will you be one?

When you fear the message your intuition holds for you then pay attention to what ideas come up as alternatives. if you fear that path as well then you should pray for courage. because when your intuition is telling you one thing, and you do another thing, there’s usually that familiar “i told you so” that pops up. .
