The #metoo movement has been pivotal in bringing awareness to the prevalence of domestic & sexual violence in our society. Increased focus has come to criminal justice and workplace issues, yet little public attention has been placed on the long lasting effects that trauma and PTSD can leave on a survivor.

Leslie Morgan Steiner tells the dark story of her relationship, and corrects misconceptions about domestic violence.

This violence, and it’s aftermath affect all populations and people in all types of relationships, from all different cultural backgrounds, socio-economic statuses, and sexual identities. The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence estimates that 1 in 3 women will experience violence in a relationship during her lifetime. However, since only 1/4 of all physical assaults, 1/5 of all rapes, 1/2 of all stalkings perpetuated against women by intimate partners are even reported, the number of survivors is likely much higher.
