Tell To Live”
Report domestic violence!
”A man can tell a thousand lies”
”If I ran away, I'd never have the strength to go very far” There are associations and numbers you can call for help:
Last year alone 21907 cases of domestic violence were reported in Portugal. It is a lot, but truth be told, many more go unreported. Whether it is for fear or gullibility, many victims do not report their assaults. These can be physical, psychological, sexual or verbal. Abusing spouses often say they regret it afterwards or bring flowers the next day. This does not make it up for it. There are none so blind as those who will not see.
