#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… #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.

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.

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.
#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.

"Grasping English" Part II
A thread about the new motion to dismiss the JCD v. AH case.
If her lawyers want to argue semantics, let's do it. #amberheard #johnnydepp #justiceforjohnnydepp #johnnydeppisinnocent #CivilRights #aclu @ACLU #domesticabuse #domesticviolence #dvsurvivor
(1/18)Amber Heard (AH)'s lawyer argues Johnny Depp (JD)'s defamation suit against her be dismissed bc he misinterpreted her meaning, and the statements in question are not about him and not 'actionable' as defamatory

I disagree. This thread explains Part II of why.…

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.…
And a shooting where a music video was being produced in Philly:…

I know someone in my professional life, who was a top ranked, high designation, sales & marketing professional. she would come to work on most days with stuff that hid her bruises. #DomesticViolence 1/n
And this was a case where the violence was a regular occurrence. Most of my women friends have been hit at least once by their men. Many more than once. it is random. Not regular like the first case. #DomesticViolence 2/n
I have cousins who have faced domestic violence. casual violence. the slap, the pinch, the hair pulling, that leave no marks. Not like the first case. #domesticviolence 3/n

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
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.
@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.

It’s still dark out. The clocks are all wrong. My debut middle grade, Riverland, comes out in 5 weeks, & I’ve been having nightmares.

They’re not rare. I’ve had them since I was very young. But they are getting surprisingly specific.

#riverland #portalfantasy #domesticviolence
I’ve been weighing how much I want to talk about this, & still don’t really know, but the clocks are all wrong today anyway so I’ll just start.

One of the things that separates #domesticviolence survivors (I refuse to say ‘victims’ - we are survivors every minute of every day.)
Is that there are active & passive pressures to make everything look okay.

You want a roof over your head, you want to keep going to school, you want to protect your sibling (or your child, pet, whatever you love.)

#domesticviolence enrolls you in a lifetime school of silence

The Trump Administration is #AtWarWithWomen. The #ViolenceAgainstWomenAct ( #VAWA ) has been allowed to expire and they have quietly changed the definition of #DomesticViolence.
The Trump Justice Department declared, only harms that constitute a felony or misdemeanor crime may be called #domesticviolence. The isolation, financial control, emotional attacks, and verbal assaults are no longer considered domestic violence.
I am a survivor of #domesticviolence and long before the horror of the physical abuse that would constitute a “felony or misdemeanor” came the systematic destruction of my ability to be a free and functioning individual.

This is a hit piece because Gillibrand's progressive stances terrorize the GOP, but there's some great details about her hard work, her dedication to public service, her leap left.

Twenty Things You Probably Didn’t Know about #KirstenGillibrand…
Gillibrand's finances and her husband's (he makes under $20k) are detailed. Their house cost $335k. Not wealthy NYers.
Her evolution on guns and immigration is a story of listening to others: she went from A to F in a year with the @NRA.
#Gillibrand admits she didn't know any immigrants and her district was 98% white. Now she tries to stop deportations in NY, something I learned from sources, but which Gillibrand does not use for photo ops. A complete 180° when she joined the Senate.

Here is my message to @billshortenmp odds are that you will be the next PM of Australia 🇦🇺 post the next Federal Election. I ask you to focus on the following concerns:
1. #ClimateChangeIsReal we need to treat this as a national emergency. If strategies are not put in place ...
... now then what kind of environment will be the “norm” for your children and grandchildren?
2. Stagnating wage and poor employment conditions for those not earning the “average” wage in Australia. Restoration of penalty rates. We need wage growth. Fairness surrounding .......
... taxation of the rich. I agree with your #FrankingCredits policy and ask you to investigate the #negativegearing corporate welfare provided to those that have multiple investment properties. I am not saying get rid of it altogether but there again needs to be fairness.........

So the @cpsuk are allowing teen girls & women to be sexually tortured on film. I have evidenced this horror on my blog. Proving much is non-consensual/ DV victims/performers who suffer mental health issues/physical harm to breasts /anus/genitalia etc… #VAWG
Also, a significant audience of online violent pornography are children and teenagers. #Pornhub hosts thousands of sexually violent videos that have millions of views. Many of these videos are 'home-made' and single males upload their own sexual offences against girls & women
1) The coercion, exploitation, psychological and sexual abuse of women in pornography (Part one)…

10 THINGS MEN CAN DO TO PREVENT GENDER VIOLENCE @threadreaderapp 1. Approach sexual harassment & forms of #gender #violence as a MEN’S issue involving men of all ages & socioeconomic, racial/ ethnic backgrounds. View men not only as possible offenders, but as empowered bystanders
If someone you know is abusing his partner – or is disrespectful or abusive to girls and women in general – try to talk to him about it. Urge him to seek help. Or if you don’t know what to do, consult a friend. #SpeakUp #BystanderIntervention
Question your own attitudes. Don’t be defensive when something you do or say ends up hurting someone else. Try hard to understand how your own attitudes & actions might inadvertently perpetuate sexism and violence, & work towards changing them.

(1) These three beautiful people were murdered today at Mercy Hospital Chicago. I will tell you a little about them, what happened, and why it was not about guns, or Chicago, or politics. It was about #DomesticViolence.

Rest in peace.

(2) The woman in the middle was 28yo Dr Tamara Neal MD, who worked in the ER. Her ex-fiance was the murderer.

25yo pharmacist Dayna Less walked out of an elevator at the wrong time.

32yo Officer Samuel Jimenez, a married father of three, helped save many lives.
(3) I'm getting info from this article:…
