When I think of Brave I think of COURAGE and STRONG! I know MANY brave women but I have to say standing up to domestic violence would have to make a woman remarkably brave! That is why I am excited to share the Brave Woman Mission and Brave Woman Pledge with you.
What Is Brave Woman?
Brave Woman is a grassroots movement to shift personal and public perception of women facing domestic violence situations from a victim mentality to one of courage and strength.
I pledge to honor and respect brave women and children who tackle the difficult journey of change from domestic violence to a new life. I acknowledge my own moment-by-moment bravery, will remain aware of what is happening to others around me, and speak up against violence in any form. I will stand up for human dignity and safety for women and children.
How awesome! I would love if all people would treat the brave woman that have courage to LEAVE and start a new life with the honor they deserve. They have done something that is very scarey and they have no idea what their future may hold. When children are involved these woman have to think about so much more! They are not only being brave for themselves but also their children.
Society is set with the mentality that we shoudl feel bad for them or should treat them like they are fragile. But in fact these woman who stand up to domestic violence are far stronger than you and I! I admire their courage and bravery!
