Rebecca Pollock is about to issue a second edition of her book, My Life as a Battered Woman. For over ten years she has been working as an advocate for emotionally and physically abused women through the R. Pollock Foundation. Besides the book, she gives speeches, writes articles and appears on radio and TV shows to give people who face domestic abuse hope for a better life.
In the course of her work, Rebecca Pollock has risked life and limb many times to save abused women, men and children from their tormentors. She travels the country trying to get people involved because this problem brings pain and suffering to millions all over the United States, and, since October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Rebecca will be especially active in bringing a message of hope to those who require assistance. For information concerning the book and speaking engagements, please call (818) 760-8238.
If you can’t wear the official purple “Stop Domestic Violence” ribbon, by wearing the color purple in some form during October you will help the cause. Rebecca encourages everyone to help shelters in your community and get involved by telling abused victims to call the 24-Hour National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-SAFE. The bilingual hotline is always in need of financial assistance, so donations are welcome, and offers advice to those seeking to help loved ones or friends out of a bad situation.
