DV/IPV Sexual Assault

Since Last We Spoke, 11-30-15

Another Monday post, another weekend spent reading about a senseless mass shooting in this country. It’s beyond appalling, and when it targets a women’s health clinic it feels all the more personal. There’s not much I can say that hasn’t already been said here in countless other posts; what was an otherwise lovely and peaceful Thanksgiving holiday was quickly overshadowed by incomprehensible violence and some significantly tone deaf (or outright unreal) political responses. What else can I say this morning but here’s what I’ve been reading since last we spoke:

So many of these mass shooters have DV and sexual violence in their pasts
