Domestic violence in Spain


Fifty five women have died due to domestic violence since the beginning of the year in Spain. Fifty five too many women have died. In the scale of world catastrophes this might feel like a small one, surely more people die in Africa or India of starvation, more people die in wars however this particular issue concerns me and we all have or own pet hates and concerns. It concerns me that a woman cannot leave an abusive husband for fear of death because the men’s mentality is that the woman belongs to him, it is his property and it is a question of honour. Supposedly we have evolved as species, we are able to rationalise our feelings, get them under control, seek help, we have social services, a welfare state, a police force and yet this things still happen. Other members of the family must know, members of the community and yet we do not intervene because that is a domestic affair? I read with despair cases where the women sought help repeatedly and yet they still continued to suffer. Ladies we have to unite, ladies we cannot condone a single case, nothing justifies domestic violence. If we cannot feel safe at home where can we feel safe? My thoughts go to these fifty five individuals, these women and no, they did not deserve it, no they were not to blame. Nothing justifies those deaths.

I am sure domestic violence does not only happen in Spain, I am sure it happens in many countries, it just happens I am from Spain and therefore I feel those tragedies closer to me.

About Malena 113

I am a light worker. I was born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain in the early seventies and first came to England in my late teens. From then on I visited a few times, came to do some sightseeing, studied and finally settled down to work. Reiki found me in the early 2000 as a continuation of my spiritual development. I achieved Masters in Reiki in 2010 and have trained other people since. I am currently studying Theta Healing, another modality of healing. I also work with angels and archangels and they are now part of my everyday life.
