"Thou Shalt Not Be a Victim, Thou Shalt Not Be a Perpetrator, and Above All Else, Thou Shalt Not Be a Bystander."
Since last October, and in keeping our word, Focus on Women Magazine has taken up a cause to bring attention to the suffering of women who are targets of violence and abuse, dubbed, Quilted Voices, Healing Stories. In every issue, and online, we will provide testimonies of women who share their stories. Therefore, no longer will we accept the paralysis of analysis, no longer will we embrace the silence of despair, no longer will we acquiesce to character assassination and bullying behavior to distract away from one's suffering. Join us and be a part of our Mission, our Movement, our Campaign to stand up against violence against women. If you or anyone you know has a story of abuse and would like to be heard, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. so that they can join Focus on Women Magazine's Quilted Voices, Healing Stories Project. Today, we have hundreds of voices, tomorrow, we will have thousands, if not more.

Focus on Women Magazine is the most relevant, engaging and interesting magazine to hit the newsstands. They understand women's lives and their need to balance caring for a family, succeeding in the highly competitive business world and offering up their strengths to make a difference through nonprofits or community organizations. They know that women want to succeed both personally and professionally while also often tending to the world's struggles and greatest social and economic problems. The magazine reinforces that women should not settle and should always strive to excel and enhance every aspect of their lives with courage and conviction. They also should never forget their best feature which they should never leave home without, a smile.
