Looking for.......    
        I've been busy updating this website, and you can help me out. If
you know of anything on this site that isn't accurate, could you please
let me know? I'm thinking of the dinner groups and things like that. If
you know of any groups on our site that are no longer operating, I'd
appreciate it if you'd enlighten me.  Also, if there's anything you'd like to
see on this website, drop me a line about that, and I'll see what I can
do.
        Are you a writer? I could use reviewers of books, music, and
movies. If you think you'd like to do that, I'm very open to accepting
submissions. Do you not want to review movies or books but you like
to write? I'll accept article submissions also. If I start receiving
submissions, I'll create a
Guest Columnist page, and if you want to
contribute regularly, I'll create your own page!
        Also, letters to the editor would be welcome.
        Basically, I want to create more interaction with you, the Readers,
and create more opportunities for all of us to connect with one another.
And if you have any other ideas, I'd like to hear them. So write to me at
editor@womenscommunityconnection.com.
Publisher's Message
       October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
We often tend to think that domestic violence is way more
prevalent in the straight community. That's wrong - domestic
violence occurs in the same percentage in lesbian/gay
relationships, but nobody wants to talk about it. Maybe it will go
away, if we remain silent, right? Wrong. I can personally attest
to the fact that women can have an abusive, controlling
personality too.
         If you are experiencing domestic violence, GET HELP!!!
Abusers typically try to make up for the abuse, and be so sweet
and contrite when they promise never to do it again. Don't
believe it. They will, unless they get some help too. Most of
them don't. Thinking that this time, it seems like they really
mean it, is a big mistake. The violence escalates over time.
And maybe you think that since you understand it, they had a
rotten childhood, complete with abusive parents, that it would
be wrong to leave her. That's a mistake too. Just because a
person had an abusive background, doesn't mean they have
the right to abuse you, and you should not put up with it. There
are shelters where you'll be safe, while you figure out how to
get your life back on track, without your abuser. So, please,
click on the link in this column, and find out what resources are
available for you.
         Remember, it is never your fault!!!!!
