My name is Kathy Polston-Dalton, I am Mrs New York Globe 2013. Over the following months I will be publishing a weekly blog dedicated to bringing light to the dark world of abuse lived in by women all around us. Since 1997 the Mrs. Globe organization has served as the primary fundraiser for the W.I.N. Foundation (Women In Need). Founded in 1996 by Dr. Tracy Kimble, the W.I.N. Foundation is a non-profit charity specializing in programs of recovery for abuse and life empowerment for women. My goal is to use this blog to highlight the unacceptable level of abuse and intimidation faced by women across this country and throughout the world.
