This is unfortunately a too well-known scenario in our world. I'm sorry this happened to you and you felt you couldn't tell anyone including the people closest to you.

I'm glad you decided to break your silence and write about your experience. I'm honored that you shared it on The Virago. My hope is that your story will give one woman the courage to do the same and stand up for herself. You are a strong, brave woman. Thank you.
