    • Hi Tom,
      This article is geared specifically toward women (it’s for a women’s magazine) and female victims. Hopefully, more of a dialogue will open up around this type of abuse in the near future, and there will be more opportunities for people like you to tell your stories.

  1. Seems like a big ask to have a photo and name for such a sensitive subject. Perhaps it is different in my country…I still don’t get respect from subsequent treatment providers, I doubt I’d fear much better in the media.

    • Yes, it’s a leap for any one of us to be willing to go that public. Scary stuff! But can you imagine an article in a women’s magazine that has no photos? If you want to inform the public, start a dialogue, and have readers identify with the women in the story, then we need to be willing to show ourselves.
