Michelle Jewsbury

Over 20,000 women have been murdered by men due to domestic

violence since 2003. Unsilenced Voices founder Michelle

Jewsbury nearly became one of those women. For years, Michelle

was trapped in the domestic abuse cycle. She walked on

eggshells around her partner, suffered his violent blow ups, and

tried to believe his apologies. Instead of being accountable, her

abuser worked to keep Michelle isolated and silent. In December,

2015 she summoned the strength to break that cycle, leave her

abuser, and share her story. Now, Michelle works to combat

domestic and gender-based violence on a global scale as the

founder and CEO of Unsilenced Voices.
