As December was winding down, I was on the lookout for a simple New Year’s Resolution. Not the typical stuff, mind you. I wanted one that was far easier to keep than staying on a diet or working out at the gym. (Been there, done that… and without much success.)
I wanted a resolution that could be accomplished quickly yet had lasting results. So I resolved to learn something new.
When this article, “Why Didn’t You Just Leave?“ came to my attention, I knew I’d found what I was seeking. Not only would I learn something new, but I would also lay some old misconceptions to rest.
I remember talking with my teenage son in October when I first started working for A Woman’s Place and the issue was making national headlines. He asked me, “Why don’t the women just leave?” At the time, I was a bit puzzled myself and didn’t have good answers for him. Now I do.
