I don’t do a lot of campaigning on this blog. That’s not to say that I don’t feel strongly about a number of issues, just that I choose not to use More than just a Mother for political rants and social debates. I was contacted this week by someone seeking to raise awareness of domestic abuse, giving me the horrific information that one in four women will fall victim to domestic abuse in their lifetime. One in four. That’s someone in your family, in your post-natal group, your staff room, your circle of friends. One in four. That’s too many.
I happened to have written something a few days ago on the very same subject, which was really rather coincidental as I don’t write very many short stories and when I do they are generally light-hearted, frothy, chick-litese offerings. So despite having never put any fiction on this blog it felt opportune to share my short story and raise awareness of domestic abuse at the same time. You can read more about the 1in4 campaign on their website.
Not yet. I can’t leave yet.
