Yesterday someone sent me a post outing a gentleman I know as mentally and physically abusive. The post was extremely disturbing, not only because of the images attached, but also the commentary from both the victim and her followers/friends. Then today I hop online and see someone I follow posting about the death of child due to…you guessed it, a domestic dispute.
WHAT ARE WE DOING LADIES?
For months I’ve followed case after case of women and their children being murdered and severely injured at the hands of a man. Not only have I watched and read the stories, I’ve also read the responses from other women, some in similar situations and it always hurts me to my core.
This is not about who’s at fault, this is about what we can do to save ourselves and save our daughters. Boss Up Girl was created to encourage women to take ownership of the power they have to control their lives. Being a BOSS is not about position or status, it’s about intentionally creating a life you love.
I can’t stand to see another woman suffer through painful, regretful and dangerous situations because she doesn’t have the finances, confidence or support to leave. And even worse, I can’t stand to see anymore children fall victim to the decisions of the adults who were tasked to protect and provide for them.
THE CYCLE MUST STOP & WE ARE GOING TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
Forward this message to every sister/friend in your network and GET IN THE ROOM on September 28th for the EmpowHer Experience. Playtime is over, it’s time to truly #BOSSUPGIRL
