"My work has always been so important to me. It’s where I feel safe, and valued. But my husband, he was always so jealous. He always told me my career didn’t matter, and he’d get angry if I worked long hours.
I remember when Vodafone launched the domestic violence policy. It made me realise my experience was legitimate. That abuse can happen to anyone. From any walk of life.
It helped me find the language to describe my experience… to explain what was happening. I spoke to my family, started reading about domestic abuse and I downloaded Bright Sky. Eventually, after more than 15 years, I found the courage to leave.
Not long ago, I told HR about it. They were so supportive, and helped me get counselling. I’m so proud to work for a company that takes a stand against domestic violence. I don’t know if I’d have had the strength to make the break from him, if it hadn’t been for the policy."
