Stephanie Littlewood of Leeds, England, lived an authentic nightmare inside her own house with which, unfortunately, many women will feel identified. Stephanie was the victim of domestic violence . In April of this year, the young mother was beaten so abruptly by her boyfriend that she ended up in the hospital .
"He was in a bad mood with me all night and I wanted sex, I rejected him and because of that He got angry and became aggressive, "Stephanie said. He threw her on the ground and started to strangle her . He then hit her about 50 times, punching her in the face again and again until she lost the knowledge .

In the hospital, they saw that he had lost three teeth and had the jaw rotated . The aftermath of the beating was not going to be easily cured, not to mention the psychological trauma he had endured. Stephanie decided to press charges against her boyfriend. After several months of waiting for the trial this week the verdict sentenced the aggressor to 16 months of prison . When she entered the jail, Stephanie decided to publish these photos on Facebook.
"At first I did not want to leave home, I felt so much anxiety that low my self-esteem and my confidence, "said Stephanie. "But people told me that I could not hide and that it was not my fault and I began to realize that they were right. He must be ashamed, not me. I have nothing of what shame me . That's the most important thing I've learned and I want to encourage other people who are going through this to keep it in secret does not help, it's better to talk about it. The amount of support that I have received has been overwhelming. "
Last year in Spain, we ended with 57  women dead for gender violence, 2 more than in 2014. The overall figure is even more terrible : one in three women in the world has been or will be raped or mistreated throughout his life. This disheartening statistic is even greater because most of the attacks are not are report .
