They obviously did not read this study done by one of their own…and if they attended the 2009 convention then they are not telling …But we know what we know and what every other woman knows deep within her.
We know what we know and what every other woman knows. Even so, we must take care. It is exactly when a woman would come free of oppression that she is most vulnerable.

It is exactly when a woman would leave rather than stay in oppression that femicide finds her …
