Angelina Jolie has always raised her voice to aware women, who are the victim of domestic violence, that go unnoticed many times, by using different platforms.
As the holiday season approaches, the Maleficent actor has given special advice to all the women who are the victim of domestic abuse at households and are afraid of the coming days.
During an interview, the Hollywood actress said,
“Talk to someone. Try to find allies. Be connected for emergencies. For example, you can agree [sic] a code word with a friend or family member, which tells them if you are facing an emergency,” she said.
“Begin to build a network and gain knowledge. It’s sad to say, but you can’t assume all friends and family will always want to believe and support you,” she continued.
“Often it will be strangers who help. Or other victims, support groups, or faith groups. Above all, be careful. Only you really know the danger you are in, and until you find your support outside, you may feel quite alone,” she added.
“If it has even crossed your mind that someone you know might be vulnerable in this way, try to stay close and present in their lives. Make it clear that you are there for them,” she said.
“Another thing we can all do is educate ourselves. Learn about domestic violence. Learn how trauma affects our health and can lead to biological changes, particularly in children. Take these issues seriously,” she said.
