VAWM – Two domestic violence stories by Shilpa

I grew up in an environment where no one beats anyone else, for any reason. But we had a maid who came everyday with bruises and black eye, and when I asked her what happened she would say her husband came home drunk and beat her. That is how I knew ‘some’ husbands beat their wives when drunk. I grew up with that notion. I only saw domestic violence on the TV and thought it only happens to the lower ‘class’ women who do not have the education or support from family to walk out on their husbands and come back up on their feet.
