If we are to make a positive impact in the lives of those touched by abuse we must increase awareness of the silent epidemic of Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence, encourage and support involvement in activities that help meet needs and drive change as well as discover individuals, companies and organizations willing to be passionate in their support. It is time for us all to adopt a simple view..."Don't do it and Don't take it" and "Don't suffer in silence."
Of course many have come to know how we blend fun, fashion and inspiration together with making a difference with:
Society of Women Who Love Shoes(SWWLS)
What do we believe?
We believe we deserve to feel:
Special Worthy Wanted Loved and Secure
And we love shoes too, and we are:
Stepping up to make a difference
Helping hands reaching out
Organizing and championing change
Engaging and educating about abuse
Shouting it’s time to end the cycle of abuse
“Let’s turn on the
light and end abuse.”
The power of shoes, step up with us!
One in every Four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime (National Institute of Justice and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention).
