"Monologues of victims on radio "Dzveli kalaki" reflect the plight of women, various twists and turns of life, clash with social stereotypes:

 … Jealousy ... - as one of the forms of psychological violence that turns woman's life into hell ...

 Society believes that she should close her eyes for the sake of children ... husband does not see anything violent and abusive in his behavior...

 The heroine of the monologue is split. Listener should make a conclusion by himself/herself.

 One can live for years in an environment that is far from ideal and harmonious family, but not become embittered and maintain dignity: a woman abandoned by her husband, is bringing up his daughter from another woman (he and the woman died in a car crash). She did not listen to the advice "of well-wishers", because she could not leave a little girl in an orphanage.

The format of anonymous radio monologues gives the opportunity to hear the dramatic stories of women who have spent their lives in such a way that they had not even thought about what it would be more correct to find a way out than to live with a husband-violator with the constant sense of impending doom.

A sense of inferiority, failed career and personal life, bad health – all these are the cost for a patient, which accompanies the cycle of physical, economic, and psychological violence.

These stories are different from previous ones because they are told by relatives of women-victims of violence, but not by the victims themselves. They still do not realize the drama of their situation. This underlines once again how difficult it is for them to analyze the situation and to adequately assess the reality.

Unfortunately there are many such women...
