If you've ever felt invisible, you have a story to tell.
This book highlights stories of women who have felt invisible at some point and are coming out now to share how they went from invisible to INVINCIBLE.
Not all of the stories are about domestic violence, but it is rampant throughout the world and we want to put a spotlight on some of the staggering statistics relating to domestic violence. Here's one thing to consider, not all domestic violence is against women. Men are abused in their relationships, too.
Even though all the stories in this compilation are written by women, this book isn't about bashing men. It's about empowering oneself to come out of the darkness and into the light.
- According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, on average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.
- 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner contact sexual violence, and/or intimate partner stalking with impacts such as injury, fearfulness, post-traumatic stress disorder, use of victim services, contraction of sexually transmitted diseases, etc.
These numbers are shocking and unsatisfactory.
As a group, the INVINCIBLE women have selected Dress for Success as our charity partner. Rest assured knowing that 100% of the net proceeds from the sales of this book are being donated to Dress for Success where their mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
As you read these stories, put yourself in their place and imagine what it must have been like to experience what they experienced. They have overcome their feeling of invisibility and are now empowered to live the rest of their life as the INVINCIBLE women they were meant to be.
