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. http://www.worldpulse.com/node/52523
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. http://www.worldpulse.com/node/52560
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.
