关于假设什么:私密暴力的故事:
当Tanya Selvaratnam于2016年7月在民主国家公约中遇到了纽约州埃克·施奈曼时,他们似乎就像是完美的比赛。两者都是哈佛大学;两者都研究了中国人;这两者都对灵性和冥想感兴趣,两者都在娱乐和艺术世界的妇女行业崛起的崛起之星;Schneiderman在法律和政治。

然而,闭门后面,坦尼娅的生命是什么,而是理想的。Schneiderman成为控制,意思和操纵。他喝了很多,使用沉积物。性变得暴力,他叫Tanya-谁出生在斯里兰卡,并在南加州南部长大 - 他的“棕色奴隶”。他孤立和操纵她,如果她试图离开,甚至威胁要杀死她。

美国的二十五名妇女是国内虐待的受害者。坦尼娅从未想过她将成为这一统计数据的一部分。在成长,她目睹了她的父亲身体上,情感地虐待她的母亲。Tanya知道家庭暴力的模式和迹象,并没有看到自己是远程脆弱的。然而,似乎不可能的是突然变得可怕的现实:她与纽约中最强大的男人之一被困住了。

Sensitive and nuanced, written with the gripping power of a dark psychological thriller, Assume Nothing details how Tanya’s relationship devolved into abuse, how she found the strength to leave—risking her career, reputation, and life—and how she reclaimed her freedom and her voice. In sharing her story, Tanya analyzes the insidious way women from all walks of life learn to accept abuse, and redefines what it means to be a victim of intimate violence.
