Unacknowledged r**e: the sexual assault survivors who hide their trauma – even from themselves

Surveys suggest a large proportion of women have experienced sexual assaults that they labelled as a misunderstanding. This has serious psychological repercussions and increases the chance of being victimised again

And in the blink of an eye another vengeful ex kills a mother by this one with the old trope "She cheated on me". It becomes their false mantra to find a reason the blame to victim when there is none. Six innocent littles were in the home at the time.

Our 13th victim this year. Her ex murdered Cortney and she had an order against him that he violated. There is little recourse for victims if he has no boundaries to his behavior. No safety for the victim no matter what she does, it seems.
