26 years ago, Lorena Gallo Bobbitt’s desperate act of self-defense became a lurid media spectacle. Sexism and sensationalism drowned out the real story: one of a shy young immigrant woman enduring horrific domestic violence.
Now, with a new documentary from Jordan Peele and her foundation behind her, Lorena is speaking out in her own resounding voice.
This Domestic Violence Awareness Month, go beyond the headlines to meet the real Lorena: a proud survivor and advocate for all those affected by domestic violence.
All proceeds go to Casa Myrna to fund shelter and supports for survivors of domestic violence and their children.
