Mary Ann, the youngest child and a favorite of her father's, received a good education for a young woman of her day. Influenced by a Mary Ann Evans, known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist, poet, journalist, translator and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. Influenced by a favorite governess, she became a religious evangelical as an adolescent. Her first published work was a religious poem.
Unable to believe, she conscientiously gave up religion and stopped attending church. Her father shunned her, sending the broken-hearted young dependent to live with a sister until she promised to reexamine her feelings.
Her intellectual views did not, however, change. She translated "Das Leben Jesu", a monumental task, without signing her name to the work. After her father's death in , Mary Ann traveled, then accepted an unpaid position with The Westminster Review. Despite a heavy workload, she translated "The Essence of Christianity", the only book ever published under her real name. That year, the shy, respectable writer scandalized British society by sending notices to friends announcing she had entered a free "union" with George Henry Lewes, editor of The Leader, who was unable to divorce his first wife.
They lived harmoniously together for the next 24 years, but suffered social ostracism and financial hardship. Having only lived in London, Ontario before, this was a great learning opportunity for me.
I loved living in Paris, and it led me to want to move to the big city when I finished my degree. I moved to Toronto searching for a career that would fulfill me and one I would be proud of which is what lead me to Sales Talent Agency. I had been contacted by a recruiter about a role they thought I would be a good fit for. As I worked with them through steps of the process, I kept thinking how much I wished I was on the other side of the phone, helping candidates find positions and helping candidates change their lives for the better.
I knew then that I had found the right career for me and expressed my interested in joining the company. Next came a push or a shove, then a punch — and then suddenly, a black eye and broken ribs. How could she admit to me what she was enduring? I had to see for myself.
I will never forget one morning when I went by her apartment. Lisa opened the door and stood there with a black eye and tears streaming down her cheeks. She confided the truth and I begged her to do what was essential. Eventually, Lisa filed for and obtained a protective order. But her abuser was clever.
Soon, Lisa took steps to drop the charges: He told her how sorry he was and that it would never happen again. She wanted to believe that she was loveable; and if she was loveable, of course, he would love her. He banged my head on the floor. He blackened my eye and broke my finger. I would have realized that my Lisa was under a power stronger than her own.

I would have done some things differently. I cannot be sure that the outcome would not be the same, but at least I would have had the tools to intercede in a more appropriate way. Let me give you the most important ones. Over the past nine years I have come to understand and empathize with women who are caught up in this cycle of violence. Through this understanding and education and awareness we can be better prepared to first stop and then fix the hurt.
Each time I speak to a group, I am approached by five, six or ten people who want to talk to me about someone they know is a victim. Maybe they are talking about themselves.
Maybe they are talking about their children. Talking is the first step toward breaking the cycle. There are many other steps and many resources. And no matter how charming the abuser may seem, when you listen, believe.
