The truth is that domestic violence and violence against women touch many of us. This violence is not a private matter. Behind closed doors it is shielded and hidden and it only intensifies. It is protected by silence – everyone’s silence. Violence against women is learned. Each of us must examine - and change - the ways in which our own behavior might contribute to, enable, ignore or excuse all such forms of violence. I promise to do so, and to invite other men and allies to do the same.
I love this man. My dad raised me to be a Trekkie watching him & Captain Janeway growing up. Between this and Miss Grotke from Recess I was a budding feminist and I didn’t even know it. :’)
