What does it take to be a Brave Woman? It requires you to make brave choices and take bold actions, even when you feel small, alone, afraid, inadequate, unsure, defeated, or even terrified.
Leaving a life of domestic violence is a series of moment-by-moment decisions. A decision to be Brave and Strong, no longer a victim. They are decisions that you do not have to make alone.
Brave Woman is an organization working to change personal and public perception of women facing domestic violence situations from a victim mentality to one of courage and strength. Brave Woman wants every woman and child to have the supportive resources they need to live without fear. Visit www.BraveWoman.org to read the stories of courage from other brave women and to give and get help from domestic violence situations.
I remember the feelings of fear, isolation, helplessness and inadequacy. It seems like so long ago to me. I am glad to say that I am a Brave Woman. I have accomplished so much since leaving behind a life of domestic violence. Please join me today in taking the Brave Woman Pledge. Did you know that 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime? So even if you have never been a victim of domestic violence yourself, chances are you know a woman who has. Let’s join together to stand up for human dignity and make a difference!
