‘daddy bashed mummy

Jemma Palmer, 38, Hull Hearing my boyfriend Gareth, then 30, turn his key in the door, I panicked. I shoved the pregnancy test into my jeans pocket, checked myself in the mirror. ‘Is that you, love?’ I shouted nervously from the bathroom of the little flat we shared. ‘Who else would it be?’ he teased. Taking a deep breath, my brain scrambled for what to say. It was March 2015 and I’d fallen pregnant with our first child. Truth was, it was a massive shock. We’d only been dating five months. I had no idea how Gareth might react. But my worries vanished when I spotted a bouquet of red roses in his hand. ‘Just because,’ he smiled. It felt like a sign. And Gareth was over the moon when I told him the news. Over the next…

journey for justice

Kristy Bond, 30, South Yorkshire Sitting in my usual seat, I felt the bus come to a halt. Every day, I followed the same route. Past shops, the same buildings, the schools, I knew each bump and bend of those roads. That’s how I knew, without even looking up, exactly where I was. I mean, how could I forget? This stop, the house next to it, it’s where everything changed for me. It was February 2017 and, even though I was 27 now and a mother, I still felt like the same terrified 11-year-old whenever I was there. For, in August 2001, when I was 11, I’d been excited about a sleepover with my friend Lisa, at the home of a family friend. ‘We’ll stay up late, play on the computer!’ I cried. So much fun!
