Abuse Is Wrong In Any Culture: Inuit

To the reader

You may feel alone, ashamed or afraid to talk to someone about what is happening, or people may be telling you to stay quiet for the sake of the family.

You may even be told that the violence is your fault.

But many people have found ways to stop the violence and live happier lives—for themselves and their children.

This booklet is a starting place to answer some of your questions and tell you where to find help.

In the pages that follow are real words from Inuit women who have faced violence in their relationship and their families.

You are not alone!

Hurting is not part of caring!

Your life can be different!
