When fighting against violence, you, dear sister, need to know what to do.
At Sisterhood Agenda, our Global Sisterhood Directory is full of women’s organizations that identify issues of importance and share critical resources to address violence against women and children.
Watch out for red flags.
Identify safe areas in your house.
Ask for help from your neighbors and come up with a code.
Plan for your escape.
Keep your car fueled up in advance facing the exit with ONLY the driver’s door unlocked. Keep a spare key in your pocket and put cash and clothing in the car.
In addition, write the phone numbers of your family or trusted individuals on a piece of paper and place it in your car or in your pocket together with the car keys.
Plan your first stop. It could be the police station or a safe haven.
Ask your trusted friends or family if you can contact them when you need a ride or a place to stay.
Look for local shelters and memorize your local domestic violence hotline.
If you still haven’t gathered up the courage to leave or if you think your abuser will still change, be kind to yourself, in the meantime. Focus on what you need and what brings you joy until you can move forward.
Train yourself to think positively despite the situation.
Use affirmations and counter the negative remarks you get from your abuser.
