In Memory of Kay

Kay’s Story / Violence UnSilenced.


MaggieDammit! Violence UnsilencedKay’s Story is featured in Violence UnSilenced   

   which was created by Maggie Dammit in February of 2009.

Maggie:     I founded Violence UnSilenced this spring to shed light within the blogging community on domestic violence and sexual assault. One in four women will be abused in her lifetime, and with 70 million blogs out there… well, chances are you know and read someone who is affected, regardless of what you think.

When I was working on a magazine article about domestic violence, I turned to my blog a time or two to vent — and the response was tremendous. That’s when I decided hey, I’ve got this audience and I don’t know where they came from but they are incredibly generous people and I bet if I asked them for help, they’d do it. The entire Violence UnSilenced blog has been a community effort. Even the name was suggested by readers, and put to a group vote. The design, hosting fees, and badges have been donated by readers. It’s incredible. I’m overwhelmed by the response, and more than a little humbled. The only way we’ll ever eradicate domestic violence and sexual assault is to keep talking about it, keep showing our peers how prevalent it is. I really believe that.

    Absolutely Kim, we need to talk about it. So much of it goes on behind closed doors and women need to know that they can talk about it. That is the way to stop it. xxx

    An amazing site, but amazing women. I know of many bloggers who experienced violence and have turned to Violence Unsilenced as an outlet. Thank you for sharing this, Kim, and for sharing Kay’s story.

    It is incredible how the world is getting smaller with the support getting bigger! It is wonderful that women have places to go to get the support that they need!
    Keep up the good work of keeping your sisters memory alive Kim.
