Neshamas Confront Abuse

This was an intense week on Neshamas.  Many of our writers spoke about the pain of sexual and emotional abuse, often from their husbands.

In Even Now… Me Too??? a Neshama who has been raped and emotionally abused by her husband for years wonders how much more she can bear.

In Jewish Women Say Me Too a Neshama calls for Jewish women to unite against a culture which has, as she sees it, been accepting of rape.

And, in My Scarlet Letter, a pregnant Neshama whose husband was unfaithful wonders about the fairness of a system that judges her more harshly for the length of her skirt than him for his infidelity.
