Silence Can Say So Much

Abuse (Photo credit: Ex-InTransit)

Silence tells the victim they are alone, they don’t matter

they deserve the abuse

Silence gives the abuser the power to continue the abuse

The only way to end abuse is to end the silence

Stop shaming and blaming the victim into silence

Stand proudly, speak loudly against abuse

Put the blame and shame where it belongs.

(Carrie Reimer 1958)
