October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This month, we’ve been featuring stories by survivors and hosting community conversations about domestic violence with members from the Engendered Collective. In two weeks, Americans will be going to polls to decide who they want to lead this country. If you’ve been paying attention to how our leaders are acquiring and deploying their power and feeling anxious, agitated, and scared, you understand what abuse is. These tactics are coercive control and can be exercised by the state or in an interpersonal relationship. We’ve asked listeners to share with us some of their experiences.
If you want learn how to be an upstander and help end systemic sexism and its coercive and violent manifestations in our society, please take this time to subscribe, share, follow us in social media, including our new Medium engendered publication. If you’re a survivor, advocate, or pro-feminist ally, please join our Engendered Collective community who are coming together in knowledge-sharing and building, collective care and healing and advocacy to increase accountability for abuse. Thank you to all the listeners for your ongoing support and to the survivors who called or wrote in with their stories. Your voice will help bring greater awareness to the harmful and widespread social, economic, and health impacts of abuse. Together, we can build a cultural literacy around abuse and abuse of power and better identify it, confront it, prevent it, and heal from it.
