i have been thinking about this topic for years and I am writing a piece on it now – as soon as it’s ready I’ll post it, however in the interim I wanted to share these thoughts with you:

 

 Perhaps domestic violence and family violence go unchecked because we use words like “domestic” and “family” which imply privacy – to change the culture, maybe we should change the terminology.

Violence against women, violence against children. 

Ugly, nasty, manipulative violence hidden behind the idea that if he used to love you, he has the right to decide whether or not you deserve protection.
