I'm going to instead ask you to look at the amazing work done by Glasgow Women's Aid. I'm honoured to be on their Board of Directors and what they do for women and children affected by domestic violence is amazing. The video made by their Hot Chocolate Club lets you hear the voices of children affected by domestic abuse who've used their Children and Young People's Services. I'll leave you with some frightening statistics:
- 1 in 4 women experience domestic abuse at some point in their lives.
- On average, 2 women per week are killed by a male partner or ex-partner in the UK.
- In 90% of domestic abuse cases, children were in the same room or in the room next door of where the abuse took place against the woman.
Violence Against Women
Here's how it works. Write a blog about being a feminist mom, raising a feminist child, a rant or anything that falls under the realm of the theme for the week. Come back and link your post and post the button on your blog.
You don't even have to be a blogger to take part - just send me your post and I will publish it on my blog for you. You don't even have to include your name if you prefer.
When you've published it, come back on Friday and via a widget thing you can add a link to your post and share it with everyone. The link remains open for 4 days.
Visit others, comment if you like them or feel inspired by them. Just go out and encourage and support other feminist Moms.
The more support you give, the more you will get back! I can't wait to meet and interact with other feminist moms around the world!
