Stop Shaming Victims

“France’s gender equality minister has announced the government’s new plans against domestic abuse”: it would allow the authorities to deal with “the most insidious situations, which don’t leave a mark to the naked eye but can mutilate the victim’s inner self.” Those found guilty face up to three years in jail and a fine of 75,000 euros, or about $90,000. (NY Times)

‘Friends often think he’s the nicest man in the world’ – Abusers can have a Jekyll-and-Hyde personality; Dr. Jekyll is often charming and hides behind a public persona. Usually, abuse takes place behind closed doors. Abusers deny their actions & blame the victim, are hypersensitive and may react with rage.

Let’s all (#metoo) campaign against worldwide domestic abuse & help stop the violence !
