Willpowered Woman is a 501c3 nonprofit that focuses on empowering underserved and underprivileged women. All money made through our events and classes go directly to the cause.
We are excited to invite you to our upcoming event “Survivor’s Stories of Triumph” happening on Tuesday May 29, 2018 at the amazing women-owned co-working space Covo.
Panelists include Carolyn Arnold, a trained co-counsellor, singer/song writer and music teacher in Berkeley and Willpowered Woman CEO & Founder, Caitlin D’Aprano. They will share their stories of overcoming intimate partner abuse, the ups, the downs and how they rose above and beyond their situation to lead a new life they love and have full control over.
The floor will be opened for a Q&A where you can ask any questions you would like! We want you to leave with a better understanding of how intimate partner abuse can happen to anyone and the ways you can stay self-empowered in your life whether you’re in a romantic relationship or not. There is life after abuse, whether you’re a survivor, are currently experiencing abuse or want to come and listen to some amazing stories, this event is for you!

Quick facts on intimate partner abuse:
Intimate partner abuse affects 12 million people each year in the US alone: learn the signs and ways to get self-empowered in your life through Willpowered Woman!
Women aged 18 to 34 experience the highest rates of intimate partner abuse, yet they are the most underserved demographic.
In 98% of intimate partner abuse cases, the partner controls finances so a woman is trapped in the relationship. Prevent financial abuse by always having an emergency stash of money, keeping bank accounts separate and having each partner take care of their own financial needs.
Abuse can come in many forms and is not only physical, it can be emotional and spiritual and the long-term effects of these are just as detrimental.
Forced pregnancy happens to 1 in 4 women in abusive relationships. Signs of forced pregnancy can be anything from rape to sabotaging birth control to your partner telling you that you don’t love them if you don’t want to have a baby with them.
