What is Brave Woman?
Brave Woman is a grassroots movement to shift personal and public perception of women facing domestic violence situations and/or recovering from sexual assault from a victim mentality to one of courage and strength.
Together we can create a world community that:
Experience the wisdom of survivors and the support of our Champions. Read the narrative stories, visit our art gallery, and listen to the music of survivors and the messages of songwriters.
Send us video, a written story, a song, or artwork. Please note that all submissions are reviewed before posting. We’ll let you know when a post has been approved and added to the website.
Get More Involved
Domestic Violence is all around us. Some we can see and others are hidden in wounded emotions, psychological control and financial abuse. Stay aware, ask questions, take action for those you love and the wellbeing of the community you live in. .
WHAT WILL THE BRAVE WOMAN COMMUNITY DO?
Gather video and narrative stories on key issues related to domestic violence and sexual assault to encourage connection and support.
Post a broad range of interviews with survivors (men, women and children), law enforcement, judges and champions, that can be used as teaching tools to foster greater understanding and effective action.
Rural Safety Networks
Share a rural safety network system for areas of the country that do not have shelters nor other resources. The first example is the Carroll County Safety Network in Arkansas.
Establish a life coaching program for survivors on a national basis.
Work with statewide coalitions to foster the message of understanding and courage under the Brave Woman image.
Support legislative changes as feasible that honor survivors and fund needed services.
Provide toolkits for action.
Create products that express the message of hope, support and change for survivors.
Survivors guide the focus of Brave Woman. Additional opportunities for voice will be created as needed.
