A week of witnessing and hearing survivor stories hasn't been easy. Kickboxing usually helps. But this week it wasn't so easy.
I also felt anger reading about your friend 'Jen's' daughter. This is why it's sooooo important to educate our teenage girls (and boys) on the red flags to look out for at the beginning of an abusive relationship. My own daughters' school have now called experts in to help them tackle sexism in the school, because - wait for it - so many girls have reported feeling unsafe and have been sexually harassed by some boys in the school. I hope and think, we are now at the beginning of a change. You talking about this Ann is part of this change - your voice gives others permission to do the same, it's important. PS I'd love to do kickboxing!
