Melek - 25, assistant cook Today I am waiting for the trial so that he can be judged and imprisoned. He says he is sorry and wants me to come back. There is no way that is going to happen. I was beaten by my husband but also by my parents-in-law for ten years. For all those years I never left the house except to go to work, and always accompanied by my husband. I‚Äôve really had enough. Every day I cry and think of my children. I am tired but I am going to win through. I managed the first step by coming to the refuge and a second one by finding work. I want to go on from there: get my children back, find a flat and have a quiet life. In the end it is me who is going to win, and not my husband.
