Hello, friends. This is Eva (Evasius OfSeattle). Purple has given me the honor of inviting me to share some of my experiences and perspectives on her blog. I haven’t done anything like this before, and I don’t know how this sharing path will unfold. Deadlines have never helped me write, which means I will post something approximately whenever I am led to. *smiles*
I was simply amazed at all of the inspiring 'Shero' nominations that came in the last few weeks. As promised, I'd like to share a little about the woman we've decided to feature, in fact I believe a movie could be made about this woman and what she has been through and done with her life - though she has requested I don't share her name or picture. She truly is an altruistic and selfless hero who wishes to remain completely anonymous.
Are you new to the Purple Reign Campaign page or to the RCSM/RLSH movement? Still trying to figure out what exactly, a 'Rain City Superhero' or a 'Real Life Superhero' is? I can't answer for everyone, but this is what it means to me:
Percentage of Women Who Believe its OK for Husband's to Hit Them
Unicef released the image below showing the percentages of international women who believe it is OK for their husbands to hit them. The chart ranges from as low as 6.2% in Serbia to as high as 90% in Jordan. These numbers are shocking.
