I feel it’s so empowering sharing your story, anonymous or not, it’s amazingly brave. I also feel so proud of all these people when they get a media article!
“He would shower me with gifts and money, we’d go out, I had everything I wanted.
“He would get up in the morning and put £100 on the side and tell me to do what I want that day.”
“Sadie described how her partner accused her of sleeping with the man and stripped her of her clothing in the street.”
“ “I was seven months pregnant with my son and laying on the floor being kicked, all I cared about was protecting my stomach and keeping my unborn child safe, his parents (the abuser) actually walked in the room, saw it happening and walk back out.”
Extremely brave and hard to escape from.
