We need a Nationwide protest…

To every woman who has been denied a restraining order against her abuser because the judge didn’t think the danger was imminent enough, we need you to speak up. To every woman who has been raped, impregnated, and then forced to regularly face her rapist because he impregnated her, you are not alone. To every family member who has lost a loved one due to domestic violence, we need you to represent the loss of life. We must bind together to change legislation so the courts recognize and protect victims of violence. Children need stronger protections, not enforcement of parental property rights. We need to stand strong and create a united front. While we remain scattered and enmeshed in our own personal battles for healing and safety, the courts continue to favor protection of the abuser and deny us and our children basic rights. Every battle for our rights and safety affects us all. I am not seeking an exception in protecting myself and my child, I am seeking better protections for us all. Our children, our society, cannot improve without better protections for victims of violence. We can make a difference for those that walk this path behind us. Unite!

No longer my secret.
