There is no proof other than the little bit of pain left in my heart from the years I wasted with a monster, caged in an abusive relationship.” (Jeanne) Jeanne wasted her five years of broken-winged life with a monster.

Every day, we see images or hear about violence against women in the news, on TV shows, in the movies and in our homes and workplaces. But, have we ever thought of any steps to prevent it?
