We Need Your Story! Moments of Clarity: When Was the Moment You Knew You Were Going to Leave Come What May?

Submit Your Moment of Insight for the 2014 Issue: Next Deadline October 31st 2013! Submissions being accepted until December 15th 2013.

Where to Begin. WRITE your moment of insight. That moment when you knew something had to give, and for once, it wouldn’t be you! Find closure. Break the Silence. Help Others Recognize the Signs. We'll print your story in an anthology to be published in January to promote 1 Billion Rising 2014. What's that? On 14 February 2013, one billion people in 207 countries rose and danced to demand an end to violence against women and girls. It's going to happen again, & again & again.

WRITING is one way to make sense of our experience & turn pain into art. Your moment of insight matters. It matters to you & it matters to other women who don’t yet believe they can get out. When you hone that moment of clarity into a 1-2 page story, when you refine your understanding of how you got you out, it’s like polishing a gem. It strengthens your resolve, your sense of certainty, your very identity.

Find closure. Break the Silence. Help Others Recognize the Signs.

Please print the attached Call for Submissions and post it in your local domestic violence center, your health food store, the women's health clinic. You'd be surprised how many of us are out there, living silent lives of incomplete experience. Share how you got out that others need not suffer what you did!

This would be a great thing to re-post in the "sharing solutions" and/or "resource exchange" sections under the "Community" tab. It may reach more people that way. If you wish, I can do it for you.

Thank you for posting this opportunity! I look forward to learning more of your insights as we go along!

Let us Hope together-
