NSFW!

It's not easy being a battered wife in California. The children keep asking why you're bruised, the bills won't pay themselves, and you spend your evenings hoping that your husband will drink so much that he lapses into an alcoholic stupor before deciding that he feels 'amorous'.

Fortunately, when you're in need of a safe place, a place of refuge, somewhere to jst get away to, the Northumberland Services for Women are there to help. And their website, www.nsfw.ca will tell you all about how they can help.

Just don't type www.nsfw.com. Whatever you do, don't expect "a respectful environment that facilitates empowerment and choice" at .com.

(The same holds true for those children involved in the National Schools Film Week at www.nsfw.org, you won't want to see the movies at .com. Well, you might, but you're not allowed.)
