Women in abusive relationships are especially vulnerable. Single moms are now required to educate their kids at home and try to make the online connections work. On top are the antics of our President waking up memories of an irrational authoritarian parent screaming that kids have no rights but to listen to their parent. Dr. Fraad highlights some women leaders like Rep. Katie Porter of Southern California, who is speaking out to keep the President accountable to his ignoring the calls for mitigation action in the pandemic enveloping our nation with the most cases and deaths due to the virus in the world, and like New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in taking decisive action to stop the corona virus in her nation early when it counts.
