    13 | Geua Atkinson: Trauma & Abuse Survivor & Public Speaker

    Coming up this week on the 17th of July is World Day for International Justice, which seeks to protect people from crimes of aggression, to support justice, and promote victims’ rights. This is why we're thrilled to Geua Atkinson for Episode 13. For 30 years she was a housewife and mother. But nearly a decade ago her husband left her and she had to rebuild her life while recovering from trauma and abuse. Now, she is helping other women who have been abused to take back control of their lives and understand the power they hold.
