THE STORY:

The Return of the Lady, LLC (www. returnofthelady.org) is known for campaigns that provide awareness, education and solutions to social issues affecting humanity. The companies focus is to provide assistance to victims/survivors and their families. In addition, ROTL has a fashion and beauty division that is known for sophistication, class and superb style. Providing cutting edge high end vintage and red carpet attire to socialites, celebrities, television and film clients. ROTL is the creator of the signature tank top 'This is Not a Wife Beater', designed to educate society about Interpersonal Violence and eradicate the glorified term "wife beater", which is so commonly misused in today's society. There are 23 million (19.3%) women and 2 million (1.7%)men who are victims of attempted rape or completed rape. 18.3 million women( 15.2%) and 6.5 million men(5.7%) are victims of stalking victimization and 27.3 % of women and 11.5% of men are victims of intimate partner violence. Nine out of ten females will experience some form of abuse before the age of 21. As a daughter of a silent survivor of a violent rape, I remember growing up as a child witnessing my Mom's battle of pain and distrust, especially towards men. At the time of her attack, years prior to my birth, she was 29 years old, now almost 60 years later, she is still silent from the humiliation of her experience. Women of that time did not tell anyone of their attacks for fear of being separated from their families due to embarrassment and shame. Attackers were never discovered and therapy was not common and considered taboo, so resources for help were very limited. Living in modern times and having all the knowledge we have now about violence against women .....Why are we still calling white tank tops Wife Beaters? An interesting article was written April 8th, 2016 by former Washington Post style writer Rachel Lubitz, currently writing for online style magazine, Style Mic. https://mic.com/articles/139771/why-are-we-still-calling-white-tank-tops-wife-beaters#.5TXGh0YkU In this revealing article, answering the question and providing some clarity to the continuous societal association of "Wife Beater" for a simple white fashion tank top is attempted . On May 25th, 2016, The Return of the Lady was chosen to attend the White House United State of Women Summit in Washington, DC from June 14th -15th, 2016. Our organization is honored to have been nominated and chosen to participate in the USWO summit. Our mission is to speak for women who cannot speak for themselves.
