On this #SurvivorStories series episode, our guest is Karen Gosbee, domestic abuse, coercive control survivor, advocate for policy and system reform, and author of her memoir, A Perfect Nightmare: My Glittering Marriage and How It Almost Cost Me My Life. The book chronicles Karen’s journey to consciousness about her abuse, the roles her family and friends played in her life, and the ways in which society and culture shaped her views and definitions of herself, her worth, and relationships. Throughout our conversation, we ask Karen to share #abusertactics, #signsofabuse, and #upstandertips.
During our conversation, Karen and I referenced the following resources and topics:
- How masculinity impacts college cultures and male-dominated sectors like finance and brokerages
- Jess Hill's book, See What You Made Me Do: The Dangers of Domestic Abuse That We Ignore, Explain Away, or Refuse to See
- Karen's suggestions on how gaps in law enforcement response to domestic abuse can be reformed and other policy reform ideas
