Leslie Morgan Steiner Describes Her Experience with Domestic Violence in this TEDTalk

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Here is a 2013 TEDTalk by Leslie Morgan Steiner on her experience as a domestic violence victim and survivor. She encourages everyone to “talk about what you heard here, abuse thrives only in silence. You have the power to end domestic violence simply by shining a spotlight on it.” She encourages everyone to recognize the signs of abuse and to talk about it with their children, coworkers, friends and family. She asks her listeners to create a different view of survivors as “wonderful, lovable people with full futures” and not blame them for the abusive situations they’re in.
