Good News from East Lancashire Womens Refuge Association

In 2011 46 residents completed the Freedom Programme. 11 of those women were from minority ethnic background with bi-lingual workers supporting their additional language needs.
The Freedom Programme is run in the refuge continuously throughout the year.
Quote from a resident : ‘It was a pleasure to attend and we learned a lot about recognising abusive behaviour once we resettle.’

A man has been charged with murder and arson after a woman was burned to death in a lift in her New York apartment building.

Another one!

A Polish man who shot his partner with a Taser stun gun and then buried her alive in a Yorkshire wood was found guilty of attempted murder on Monday


I have no more programmes planned for men.

Men who wish to improve their behaviour can now complete the 'Freedom Home Study Course' which must be used with 'Living with the Dominator'

Men who want to buy the Home Study Course should read the free chapters which are available to download on my site. Men who buy the books without doing this and consequentially have a tantrum will not get a refund.

It is essential that their partners attend the Freedom Programme for women if they are still together. The only person who can judge whether a man has changed is his partner or former partner. If he continues to use abusive tactics he has clearly failed the course.

Never have conversations with them about their behaviour! They talk nonsense and they will get worse if you listen to them. This is why 'counselling ' can make them even more abusive.

‘I recently split from my long term partner due to my unreasonable behaviour.
i have been reading your book living with the dominator and it has opened my eyes to just what a horrible person I have become.’

Another Domestic Violence Murder!

Police have launched a murder inquiry after the bodies of two adults and two boys were found in a house.

Richard and Clair Smith and their children Ben, nine, and Aaron, one, were found in a fire-damaged upstairs bedroom of their house in a cul-de-sac in Pudsey, near Leeds, late on Sunday afternoon.

Detectives are thought to be treating it as a case of murder/suicide. No-one else is being sought.

Who said feminists have no sense of humour!

Tired of cosmetic surgeons profiting from body hatred? Want to speak out against a porn culture that is driving more and more women to the surgeon’s table to get a ‘designer vagina’? Then join the Muff March!

The number of women getting ‘designer vagina’ surgery is on the rise:

■Between 2007- 2008 there was a 70% increase in the number of labiaplasty operations carried out by the NHS
■In 2010 the Harley Medical Group received more than 5,000 inquiries about cosmetic gynaecology, 65% of them for labial reduction, the rest for tightening and reshaping
The increase in vaginal cosmetic surgery is being driven in large part by the ‘pornfication’ of culture and the beauty ideals peddled by the porn industry.

On Saturday 10th December we’ll be donning a muff and marching down Harley Street – famed for its cosmetic surgeries. Marchers will be speaking out against surgeons profiting from body hatred and raising awareness about the growing pressures on women to seek labiaplasty. We’ll also be drawing attention to the fact that demand for cosmetic surgery increases over the Christmas period.

And we’ll be staging a synchronised muff dance….

WHY ‘MUFFS’? We’ve taken inspiration from the Muffia – a fantastic feminist performance artist group. Proudly wearing ‘muffs’ is also a challenge to the porn norm of women having to remove their pubic hair.
