TIPTON COUNTY, Tennessee — A woman posted shocking, graphic images of herself to Facebook in an effort to raise awareness about domestic violence.
Angela Brower had to undergo surgery to repair a crushed eye socket and a broken nose.
These are some of the severe injuries she sustained after her boyfriend, at the time, attacked her, WREG reported.
The first images were posted to her Facebook page on May 23rd, and she has uploaded pictures nearly every day since then.
Some of the photos included messages like, “It’s time for us women to make a stand against domestic violence!!!!,” “Maybe, just maybe this will make women walk away from violence!!!” and “Does this look like love to ANY OF YOU?”
Angela Brower hopes the photo she posted will help facilitate discussions of domestic violence and help women who feel trapped in abusive relationships get out, WREG reported.
Brower, who said she will not be able to work for at least 2 to 3 months as she recovers from her injuries, has set up a GoFundMe page to help cover her medical costs.
Her ex-boyfriend was arrested and charged in connection with the incident, according to the station.
