This video on domestic abuse in a marriage created by a reporter from the middle-east went instantly viral on Twitter. After watching the video, thousands came forward to support victims, who are struggling with physical and emotional abuse in silence.
Domestic abuse is the single largest crime against women in India, with 122,877 reported cases in 2014, according to the National Crime Records Bureau.
And sadly some of the victims of domestic abuse believe, that it may get better with time. But it never does!
A slap today turns into a fist and, bare hands into a belt-buckle. With every passing moment, the victim pushes herself an inch closer to death. Hence, it is much more important than ever to build awareness about domestic abuse in marriage and let the victims know that it only gets worse.
To do so, recently a powerful video about domestic violence was shared by a woman that goes by the name of Jenan Moussa on Twitter. Her bio reads,
“Roving reporter Arabic Al Aan TV. I mainly report on Middle East topics. Specialized in checking garbage bins for secret documents & ISIS laptops. Horse Rider.”
The shared video captures the journey of a young girl depicting various stages of domestic abuse in a marriage.
This video reflects how a woman gets conditioned to live in an abusive marriage despite facing so much brutality.
Like many romantic relationships, abusive marriages also go through a happy stage of a relationship in which everything feels dreamy. The video then shows how a woman usually ignores the initial acts of violence. And then with time, things become so bad that she can’t even hide her bruises with the help of makeup anymore.
And at last, the girl shows her helpless face that has bruises all over.
You can watch the video here that shows how abusers never become better.
