Real Life Crime and Domestic Violence Stories

Every day the newspapers are filled with shocking crime stories and many women’s magazines strive to tell the story behind the headlines, sharing the full experiences of those involved.

Falling victim to serious crime, either at home or abroad, can be one of the most traumatic experiences in a person’s life.

Women share their experiences for different reasons – some to fight for justice, some to raise awareness and some simply to obtain a sense of closure to their ordeal.

From sensitive court cases of murder, rape and abuse to domestic violence, stalkers and neighbours from hell, sharing personal details of how you dealt with being a victim of crime can also encourage other victims to overcome their own ordeals.

Sometimes even the criminals themselves want to talk – perhaps you have turned your back on a life of gangs, drugs, violence, and want to speak out to encourage others to do the same, or simply want to apologise to your victims?

Maybe you were forced to make the heart-wrenching decision to turn your loved one into police? Or maybe your boyfriend/husband led a secret life of crime?
