IMPORTANT NOTE TO OUR LISTENERS:
Each episode Girly Mags likes to share the cover of the magazine featured. However, this month’s cover featured a known abuser - actor Nicholas Brendon. Girly Mags is a huge advocate of women’s rights and ending domestic assault and sexual violence, and does not under any circumstances support anyone who has a history of abusing others. It is for this reason we have chosen not to include this episode’s cover.
In the current climate we are encouraged, despite the weight against us, to speak our minds and our hearts and say NO to people who hurt us, who hit us, who break us down, who call us ungodly names, who do not listen when we tell our truths. The world is starting to listen now. Girly Mags is listening. And we encourage you to be safe and ask for help if you’re in danger or if you’ve kept a secret that is hurting you.
For all of the times you have stayed silent, now is the time to scream.
If you are in danger, always call 911.
