Women stand side by side looking into the sunset over the water.

Why we have to take sides when it comes to abuse:

If we remain neutral in the face of abuse, we are helping the abuser. Our silence is what he wants. Abuse continues because it works for abusive men, they get their way with no consequences. None of us would stand back and remain “neutral” while a grown man beat up a child but this is what we do if we remain “neutral” when there is abuse: we are allowing a person with power to hurt a powerless person.
