Day Fifteen – 16 Days of Activism


Quote: “Verbal abuse is still abuse. It’s abuse in the form of words. Don’t assume that a few hurtful words won’t cost them their life. Words hurt.”

• threats of violence against significant third parties
• threats to commit physical or sexual harm
• threats to commit property destruction
• threats to commit suicide or murder

Physical Abuse

• biting/scratching
