Domestic Violence in Barbados: Who will protect the victim?
I just wanted to share a story of domestic violence in my country, Barbados. As a current Voices of the Future Correspondent, I feel honoured to have been contacted by this woman and to be able to share her story.
Please note that the law does provide for rape within a marital situation. For some reason the police communicated otherwise.
After sharing the story on my social networks, another woman sent me a short account of a childhood memory she has. The story can be found here.
Hopefully by sharing these stories, other women will be inspired to share and start speaking with their own voices. Until then, I welcome your comments and recommendations.
