Every week, every day, every minute, and every second, reality becomes a statistic. Worldwide, women and children are being unbearably and brutally attacked, whether it be emotionally, verbally, sexually, physically, financially, or even spiritually. Manipulation and mutilation scar the human psyche and innocent victims fall prey to the vicious cycle of abuse.
Abuse comes in many forms. Whether physical, sexual, or emotional, abuse scars its victims. In some cases, abuse can be so subtle that victims live for years not realizing how another person compromised their quality of life. Unknowingly, victims can continue the abuse by placing themselves in unsafe places and life-threatening situations. The reality and ramifications of their past and present abuse often elude victims until a third-party steps in to intervene, support, and listen. Too often, it is only then abuse victims can escape the abusive relationship or situation, seek justice, and finally heal.
Founded in 2012, The Global Women’s Empowerment Network (GWEN) is a nonprofit organization using cutting-edge technology, multimedia programming, and product lines to raise awareness and funds that will support and heal women and children who have suffered abuse of any kind.
