Episode 37 – Women’s Resource Center
Once you get past the ridiculous intro with the three immature morons we call our hosts this is a great episode.

We also bust some myths (she can’t just leave guys) and learn how to approach someone if you suspect domestic abuse is happening. Help is just a phone call away at 1-800-554-4972 at the 24 hour hotline and if you have any other questions for the good folks at the WRC find them at http://www.womensresourcecenter.org/ or give them a ring at 231-941-1210.
