I have had a number of people reach out to me in the past few days w/friends they have in dangerous #domesticviolence situations. #Covid is making many homes far more dangerous. So here is a general thread on what to do if you have a friend in a #DV situation during #Covid 1/
First, courts are STILL OPEN in most jurisdictions for emergency orders of protection. They are closed for non-emergencies. And most courts can grant these 24/7. However most courts are also backlogged right now. If you can, take pictures of your important documents... 2/
Passports, birth certs, kids school & medical records, health & life insurance info, etc. Send those pics to a trusted friend and either erase them from your phone, or P/W protect them. DV hotlines can safety plan with you. If you are having trouble getting out of the house... 3/

I am an Australian teacher. You will not by default practice #herdimmunity on me & my colleagues. Read "I’m an epidemiologist. When I heard about Britain’s ‘herd immunity’ coronavirus plan, I thought it was satire" by William Hanage theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
Catching #Covid19 still means you can get it again. Prof Kim Woo-Ju, Depart of Infectious Diseases at Korea University. He's done SARS, Swine Flu Pandemic, Ebola, & MERS. At 8.08 he calls those who have #Covid19 & get it again as having a "reactivation'.
There were no brawls over toilet paper in Taiwan b/c everyone felt safe. Teachers in Taiwan had a Pandemic Office providing PPEs for teachers & students & highly trained cleaners as well. In Australia some schools didn't have enough soap for students to wash their hands.

While I understand #coronavirus is deadly serious, and #SocialDistancingNow is very important, there are a total of 165,000 cases of #ChineseVirus in the entire country.
In 2017 alone, there were 47,000 plus suicides. I remain very concerned the #CureIsWorseThanDisease
#OpenUSA
Start giving low doses of #Hydroxychloroquine as prophylatic for health care professionals and immediate doses of that and #Zpak to those who test positive. They are both long-tested safe drugs.
Open all doctors & dentists offices now to keep people out of emergency rooms
Compare, for example, numbers from leading causes of death in US-published by the @CDCgov for 2017--not to mention hundreds of thousands of abortions.
Meanwhile, #DomesticViolence is escalating. Job losses will trigger suicides from despair. People can't meet basic needs.

A set of my thoughts and reflections from week 3 of working in a #Seattle #ICU in the time of #COVID19: (1/11)
Things are still changing at work but not as quickly now. I have adjusted to my new morning routine. When I wake up, I no longer feel the pull of habit to iron a clean shirt and make sure my shoes match my belt. Everyone wears scrubs; they all get left at the hospital. (2/11)
It feels like we entered a new phase this week. Almost everyone knows someone who has been infected, and many of us know people who are very sick or have died, some of them medical professionals. (3/11)

THREAD: 8th March.

My sister Sarah Jane would have been 50 years old today.

I speak about her and tell her story in the talk I do about #DomesticAbuse but that doesn’t tell HER story.

Here’s a bit more about her and our family.

1/
We were both adopted from Guernsey. Me in 1966/7 Sarah in 1970.

I’m told (by my birth mother - that’s another story) that Guernsey in the late 60s was more like the 1900s from a morals and development perspective. So being born ‘out of wedlock’ was especially problematic.

2/
Consequently there were a lot of babies adopted off the Channel Islands to the mainland - due in some part to the transient nature of employment in the holiday and travel industries. (I was the result of a holiday romance and we found out that Sarah was also a teen-pregnancy).

Thread #Activism what we do & what inspires it
Did an interview this week about my activism - theatre activism & the #deadwomenwalking march to remember women killed in the uk by known men I wasn’t prepared for the impact the questions had on me
Asked what was my first memory of political awareness/activism I recalled being in a pub as a teenager & the bar maid had hair under her arms We saw it when she reached up for a glass above the bar My friend was disgusted- disgusted!
I couldn’t grasp why female body hair was so abhorrent to another woman & of course I was awakened to all the messages we get - bleach your moustache, shave your legs, wax your ‘down there’ It’s unnatural get rid of it! It’s dirty get rid of it!

#pleaseread Thread: Couldn’t understand why I could not sleep. I then realise that it’s four years ago to the very night that I hit my lowest point. I was in despair, borderline suicidal with no idea what to do or where to go. All because of an abusive relationship.
I was with my bully of an ex. He showed such narcissism that led me to believe that absolutely everything was my fault. I was never good enough. I’d been bullied so much that I’d lost over 20kgs in stress and fear in just over 12 months. I’d become a crumbling wreck.
He told me this night he debated leaving me as he didn’t find me sexy. I was ugly. That I didn’t do it for him anymore, and I believed it was all me. I wasn’t good enough. I was frozen. He still wanted sex but then berated me when I couldn’t do it. Too scared. Leaving me in tears

#HEUNI_Tweetsday Weekly thread on Wednesdays. This month we'll reveal you the key findings from our latest project done w/@SOLWODI, @CIRRIFUGIATI, @JRSizbjeglice, @ENoMW and supported by @EU_Justice
Simple rules: 1❤– 1 finding. 1st topic: #GBV, its consequences & risk factors.
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice So what are we actually looking into when talking about #GBV against women? Is there any definition? And where to find it? Check out #IstanbulConvention coe.int/en/web/istanbu… #VAW #HumanRights #ViolenceAgainstWomen
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice #Refugee women have different backgrounds including different personal qualities, family situations, levels of education and professions. Refugee women do not form a homogenous group, and they definitely should not be seen as uninformed #victims.

@ninaturner Gender is an accident of birth not deserving of loyalty. It doesn't overcome a record & policies. Sanders, who happens to be male, was fighting for my #ReproductiveRights in 1972, before Roe v Wade, at a time Warren was supporting & voting for the GOP.
@ninaturner Sanders, who happens to have been born male, led in fighting #domesticviolence against women. He even got the NFL to help. But, it's sexist to support him? 🤔⁉️#BernieYellsForUs and always has.



&



&

@ninaturner Breast cancer is one of a woman's greatest fears. Even though he happened to be born male, Sanders 1st legislative 'win' came out of his concern for us & he knew that scientists needed more information to find causes & cures. In 1992.

1) Dear @Viacom,

I have begun reaching out to national DV groups in an effort to address your filming and hiding Domestic Violence for years; for silencing the victims and rewarding the perpetrators.
2)

Myself and many others are also in the process of creating a mass targeted campaign in which will be contacting all sponsors who are currently supporting your TM franchises.
3)

It's time to stop rewarding the physical and emotional abuse. You are filming in front of children and to the nation something that is not only extremely irresponsible, but illegal.

Understanding Coercive Control

Part 25: Parental Alienation

To understand the prevalence of parental alienation, we first need to understand the dynamics of abuse.
THREAD
#coercivecontrol #domesticviolence #domesticabuse #parentalalienation #children #childcontact #familycourt
This isn’t a thread about whether parental alienation is coercive control or not. Alienation happens for reasons OTHER than coercive control (more of this later).
Parental alienation happens.

I personally know more mothers than fathers who have no contact with their children. I’m not saying this is an accurate reflection of society. All I’m saying is that,in my personal experience, I’m aware it happens to mothers more.

A study undertaken by J Golding in 1999 reported that as many as two-thirds of victims of abuse (64%) developed post traumatic stress disorder of which symptoms can include:
Recurrent memories (of the traumatic experience, flashbacks, nightmares, physical reactions to reminders of the traumatic event)
• Avoidance (talking or thinking about the traumatic episode, avoiding people or places that trigger memories)
• Changes in thinking or mood (emotional numbness, difficulty keeping close relationships or feeling positive emotions, negative self-image)

#gunviolence is an epidemic in the United States.

What caught our attention yesterday: the utterly horrifying #GilroyGarlicFestivalshooting . Details still emerging.

-----But there was more-------
Also this weekend, less heralded: Brooklyn festival shooting, in which at least 11 people were hurt. As many as at Gilroy. cnn.com/2019/07/28/us/…
And a shooting where a music video was being produced in Philly: 6abc.com/police-1-dead-…

This is a seriously odd story.
Glad he's okay.
It takes a big wound to require 7 stitches.
Did he fall THROUGH the shower door?
(I have the poverty level curtain, so I can't imagine a shower door.)

Sanders cuts head on shower door, receives 7 stitches politi.co/2HoxhTP
Remember when Hillary had a cough and Donna Brazile wrote in her book that she was going to replace Hillary with Joe Biden and no one thought that was the craziest freaking thing they ever heard because trashing Hillary was a national pastime?
It's 24hrs since #Bernie told his "I walked into a door" story about his head wound, for which he has this huge bandage, and I seem to be the only journalist in America asking about it.

If this were a woman, we wouldn't believe her story, just as I don't believe Bernie's story.

@reveal @TreyBundy @TreyBundy 1/disappointed in the repeated use of cases where mother is abusive. My interview w/Joan goes into greater detail of the ways in which usually male abusers use PAS as a defense against legitimate claims of DV, child abuse child sexual abuse. bit.ly/2SYai43
@reveal @TreyBundy @TreyBundy 2/ High conflict is not the same as abuse which is power and control. Former is about power struggle and latter is about domination and subjugation. The conflation of these two reinforces myth of victim as being partly or equally responsible! See my episodes in DV.
@reveal @TreyBundy @TreyBundy 3/family court is a racket and no one in the system is held accountable through systems. Let me know if you need survivor stories, transcripts, or recordings. Happy to make referrals. See Leadership Council stats attached.
