Amber Heard Pens Powerful Letter About Domestic Violence
“You are not alone. You may have suffered alone behind closed doors, but you are not alone. You need to know that. I want to remind you of your strength, a strength that has been multiplied by the number of women who stand silently behind you—a truth that allowed me to break down the doors I once found myself behind,” Amber wrote for Porter.
“Let’s start with the truth—the cold, hard truth. When a woman comes forward to speak out about injustice or her suffering, instead of aid, respect and support, she will be met with hostility, skepticism and shame. Her motives will be questioned and her truth ignored…It’s no wonder so many of us feel we have to keep quiet or risk our own safety to try to maintain our dignity by quietly enduring,” Amber continued.
“As I write this today, I can promise every woman who is suffering in silence, you are not alone. You may not see us, but we are there,” she added.
