HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Hope readers are doing good and are steady on their new year resolutions. People make it up to 21 Jan, 2011 then you are all set to win it. It takes three weeks/twenty one days to build a habit and 40 days to cement it. Good Luck.
Yes, Desi Girl did write a new year wish for GGTS but thought following is more important for now.
When a woman reports abuse people rush to judge to their best abilities. Some are genuinely interested to help her others are also genuinely interested to help the relationship (even if she wants it or not that is another story).
how is it possible, she is lying, she is so vocal and smart how could it happen to her;
she brought it on herself, he is a reasonable guy;
we need to know his side of story too;
if she is so troubled in that marriage why doesn’t she leave, she is educated, has a job and no children.
The list is unending, every one has an opinion just because it is a woman’s life. It is a woman’s life so everyone is entitled to an opinion whether they know her or not is impertinent. No matter how much information we put out about the nature of abuse and how it works some people will keep asking the same questions and judging the abused. Last year DG had the opportunity to meet Naomi Ackerman. She performed her famous monologue “Flowers Aren’t Enough.” This monologue was also staged in India few years back. It is a powerful presentation. DG highly recommends readers to share it with friends and families.
