Last night, SI Bridgend President Gaynor presented Ruth Dodsworth with a poinsettia as a thank you for her inspiring talk about domestic violence.
SI Bridgend had the pleasure of welcoming Ruth Dodsworth, broadcaster, journalist and weather girl, to our meeting last night. Ruth shared her story of being in an abusive marriage for 20 years. Coercive Control is very real. Her husband was sent to prison after she finally found the courage to call the police. This was an excellent talk by a domestic abuse survivor and provided a great deal of food-for-thought for members. Ruth is now working with the Criminal Justice Board to bring about change.
