Amber goes on to say how there’s a stigma surrounding victims of domestic violence. “I guess there is a lot of shame attached to that…label, of victim,” she says. “It happens to so many women. When it happens in your home, behind closed doors [and] with someone you love, it’s not that straightforward. If a stranger did this, it would be a no-brainer.”
At the end of the video, Amber offered advice to women, telling them to choose themselves and call for help if needed. “If I hadn’t had a few people that I really trust around me, a few women, a few friends… If I hadn’t had them around, how different my life would be.”
We’re proud of you, Amber. Go and keep women empowered and educate people on domestic abuse.
