Join Women Warriors on Wed August 13th at Noon ET as we learn about “How to Break the Cycle of Abuse” with our special guest Marilyn Hawes, Founder of the child protection charity - Enough Abuse UK – breaking the cycle – changing lives.   Learn what you can do to help break the cycle of abuse.


As a teacher Marilyn attended many courses on Child Protection and asks why none of them gave information on how to recognize “grooming” in order to protect children. This remains the case today with many courses. The ability to recognize “grooming” is an essential learnable skill. Her three sons were victims of sexual grooming and abuse by their Head teacher, her boss and best friend of 20 years.


Marilyn regularly speaks to the Media, public, organizations, schools, conferences, parents and children across the UK to break the culture of silence and resistance and to educate people with correct, relevant and vital information to prevent child sexual abuse.   She is well known for her strong, pragmatic views. Her empathy and friendly approach reaches out encouraging people to address the issues by raising their understanding which makes for a safer future for children and their families.

Marilyn has been involved in many TV programs such as ‘Judges in the Dock’ with Mark Easton from BBC.  She has appeared on BBC “ Songs of Praise “ and is regularly involved with BBC News, Radio 5 Live, SKY news, Press and others.  She passionately believes victims need not make their childhood abuse a life sentence – with appropriates therapy and support systems they can thrive - not merely survive!   To learn more visit her website, www.enoughabuseuk.com.
