In Spain, 2,150,000 women are mistreated by their partner throughout their lives and Ana Bella was one of them for eleven years, until one night she used her strength, her fear and her courage, not to sleep with the man who almost murdered her, but to take their four children, put them in the car and go to the police to report the situation.
But 80% of abused women do not ask for help. There are 1,500,000 invisible women who do not access resources because they do not report what is happening to them. Thinking about them, in 2006 Ana Bella created the Ana Bella Foundation, a network of surviving women who help victims break the silence and start a happy life. They help them in everything they need: accommodation in support homes, accompaniment to trials, financial aid, emotional support, job search...
