New York, NY (PRWEB) March 20, 2011
Emerging author and domestic abuse survivor Tiffany Johnson is scheduled to debut Enough is Enough: This is My Story, a much awaited book, about her near death experience she endured at the hands of her abuser. The book signing will commence on Saturday April, 16th, 2011 at Roy Arias Studios, located at 300 West 43rd Street, Suite 401C, New York, NY at approx 3pm. Over 100 advocates and supporters are scheduled to attend this event.
This is not an easy book to read. In her new book, Tiffany shares graphic details which includes unimaginable incidents where her abuser inserted jalapeño peppers into her vagina. She also talks about the “honeymoon phase” and shame of how many times she went back placing herself in critical danger each time. The beatings were so intensely horrific, that her 3 year old son referred to his own father as “the Boogieman”.
Today in the media and pop culture, there are also many domestic violence cases that involve celebrities. Most recently, Rihanna and Chris Brown. Recording artists express their voices in lyrics and songs that refer to domestic violence. Christina Aguilera’s "I am OK", a song about the abuse her mother endured by her father. Metallica’s “Die die my darling” - lyrics “ I'd rather see you dead little girl, than to see you with another man”. Eminen - lyrics “I will tie you to the bed and set this house on fire”. And who could forget the most infamous and tragic of them all, The OJ Simpson and Nicole Brown Simpson case.
The Statistics on domestic abuse are staggering. Everyday in the US alone, 4 women will die at the hands of their abuser. According to the Center for Disease control, domestic violence is even more prevalent than hate crimes. Statistics taken by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), shows that approximately 3 million innocent children witness domestic violence annually. Domestic abuse is a visual aid describing the different tactics of coercion and violence that batterers use to control their partners. Why the Violence? The US Department of Justice research shows that children who are exposed to violence at a very young age are twice as likely to become abusers themselves. Even the economy plays a strong role in the domestic abuse cycle. The cost of intimate partner violence exceeds $5.8 billion dollars each year.
Enough is Enough is a must read. It encourages women to not live in fear, and to pursue a life worth living.
“As I go through life each day, I realize how my insurmountable painful experience has lead me on this incredible journey. My book gives hope, when everything else seems hopeless,” says Tiffany Johnson.
