"I hashtagged it so that if anybody wanted to join in, we could form some kind of community and keep the talk going, and then all of a sudden it just blew up," she says.

I tried to leave the house once after an abusive episode, and he blocked me.
He slept in front of the door that entire night. #WhyIStayed

I thought I wasn't worthy of any other
kind of love. #WhyIStayed
As a Blk queer radical feminist activist I was afraid 2 tell
community I was living the reality I was trying to dismantle #WhyIStayed
I thought I could heal their wound. #WhyIStayed
Because before you know it, everything is in his name and he can take it away when he's mad. #WhyIStayed

Meghan Cady
Not just discriminated to women or marriages. It can happen in any type of relationship
More than three million children witness domestic violence each year
Even if they are not being abused, they are still affected
Incapable of having nurturing bonds with parents
Interfere with abuse
Living in fear in their home
Leads to harmful effects
Not until the late 1970s was anyone in the US convicted of raping a spouse.
Like other forms of rape/assault, it is still one of the most unreported crimes.
"Any situation in which you are forced to participate in unwanted, unsafe, or degrading sexual activity is sexual abuse. Forced sex, even by a spouse or intimate partner with whom you also have consensual sex, is an act of aggression and violence. Furthermore, people whose partners abuse them physically and mentally are at a higher risk of being seriously injured or killed" (heathguide.org).
