Sheila's uncle Jerry made an attempt to molest her. When he failed he stabbed her brutally in the vagina, causing serious harm to Sheila. This put her out of school for awhile and caused a little problem when she came back. This part broke my heart. I cried, knowing that I may one day have a similar situation.

Violence against Native American, LGBTQ and immigrant women: YWCA USA has created some new infographics to help illustrate how violence affects women and to raise awareness about why Congress needs to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) now -- with the provisions that help protect ALL women. Please share with others and help us raise awareness about violence against women!
