Special to GUIDON

The Fort Leonard Wood Family Advocacy Program will be hosting Susan Still, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, in the Main Post Chapel to promote Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Still is a survivor of domestic violence. After suffering years of extreme abuse from her husband, Ulner Lee Still, she was awarded custody of her sons, and her husband was jailed for 36 years.

On May 7, 2007 Susan Still appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to bring awareness to domestic violence against women. The show aired home videos recorded by the Stills’ 13-year-old son of a 51-minute-long beating of Susan by her husband.

Still has gained recognition among groups that campaign against violence against women, served as keynote speaker in Houston for the National College of District Attorneys and shared her story with Diane Sawyer on “20/20” in October 2006.
