These wonderful women have tried to go on living as normal a life as they can; suppressing the rage bottled up inside them; repressing the horrible memories which haunt them. Many keep quiet about their suffering; not because they have nothing to say; but because they are supremely better in character and virtue than those men who abused them. S...
