Need someone to talk to?
Our helpline is available to all survivors that would like to speak with a Survivor Sister or Survivor Brother. The BTSADV Helpline is available every day from 8 am to 5 pm PST at 1-800-787-3224. Our helpline IS NOT a crisis hotline. If it is an emergency, please contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-787-3224 or call 9-1-1.
Your gift of giving as a survivor of domestic violence isn’t just beneficial to many, but it’s also healing to a wounded heart that deserves to be mended.
Even the women in his family didn’t think women should be treated equally. When I later married, they mocked my wife for not taking my last name. This didn’t come from the men in the family. It came from the women. The patriarchal family structure was comforting to all of them, as a protection from a scary world. Even if that structure suppressed them, it provided a feeling of safety.
