Today with special guest host Jon Hansen! There is nothing more damaging to a woman’s self-esteem than emotional and physical abuse in a relationship. You think you’ve found the man of your dreams and then you find yourself defending every thought and action. As strange as it may sound to people who have not experienced abuse, there is often a mindset in the victim that wonders what she did to deserve the abuse. Guests: Amanda Graybill is the founder of the Little Black Dress Society, a women’s group committed to ending abuse against women. This amazing group is approaching the issue from a perspective of unrelenting positivity- their mission to dress up, have fun and give back. Katana Abbott is co-author of the “Thank God I…” book; her chapter titled “Thank God I was Abused.” She is the founder of the Smart Women’s Empowerment Project. Her story of transformation from abuse to success is inspirational.
