Many feel that will have nothing to support themselves if they report it violence because the abuser is the breadwinner. Others are scared for their actual life to tell anyone. There has been more attention drawn to the issue over the past couple decades, but only less than a century ago, victims sat in silence and if they spoke out about it, no one believed them and/or no one helped. Even now, there has to be laws just to make the police respond to these cries for help.

He saw no way out of this situation and had to free himself from this torture before it would kill him.
The founder of #metoo Tarana Burke released a statement on the importance of the movement saying “For too long, survivors of sexual assault and harassment have been in the shadows. We have been afraid to speak up, to say ‘Me Too’ and seek accountability. For many, the consequences of doing so have been devastating.” (Burke). Thousands of women have been able to speak up using the campaign and support each other in order to call this issue out for what it is. With so many women coming out and admitting to times when they’ve been taken advantage of, there is no way this is solely boys being boys.
Tom Robinson has recently been accused of and arrested for the rape of Miss Mayella Ewell down the road. He has been taken to a jail outside of Maycomb, leaving poor Helen and her children on their own. The church has begun to raise funds to support them, but as we’re all in very tight financial situations ourselves, gathering a useful amount is proving to be difficult.

Don 't get me wrong, it is bad but it 's not done with the intention of hurting someone else but to try and change their future.

"In the summer of 2014, we saw a wave of mothers and children arrive to the U.S. to escape extreme violence in Central America. These mothers fled because of gangs murdering their husbands, targeting their sons for recruitment, and threatening their daughters with sexual violence. More than 80 percent of these migrant women detained were found to have a credible threat to their safety if they were returned home.
From the first chapter she appears in, when she steps outside a prison with an illegitimate child, while her peers, an intolerable brood of Puritan people look on in disgust judging her for her actions. Many times the town people question her about who the father of the child is, but never does she give up his name because she knows the man must accept his sin himself, not by her. Hester could have killed herself because of the judgment and shame brought upon her because of her actions, but amazingly she stays strong and graciously accepts her punishment. A specific example displaying her strength appears through her lover Dimmesdale, who carries guilt for

Jaycee and her children were made to believe he was on parole after his release from prison for hurting a woman and that it was their duty to protect him by keeping their lives a secret. When he came back, Jaycee was torn by mixed emotions; fear, stress, sadness, relief, but mostly anger. She broke down in tears of anger toward him for not doing anything to prevent this from happening and toward the parole agent for taking him away then not taking him. “We relied on him, and I guess in that instant it became clear how much we relied on him and it didn’t really look like he cared.” This was the moment of realization for Jaycee that she developed the wrong feelings and opinions toward

Victims are often silenced and told that telling law enforcement will only create more of a problem for them because prostitution is against the law. In most cases, no one steps forward to get their traffickers in jail. The feeling most girls have is turning there pimp in, means turning themselves in. In other cases, many get attached to their pimp and develop dysfunctional relationships that make them scared to come out and tell law enforcement. “Traffickers also play into the narrative by telling victims, who are exploited for sex, theyĺl threaten to call the police and report them for prostitution if they push back” (Alvarez 2).
