Waneta Dawn grew up on a dairy farm in Iowa, and was raised a Mennonite. Since her mother and siblings lived in fear of her father's displeasure, as a teen Ms Dawn became interested in marital relationships. Per her church's teaching she concluded a wife would be happy if she submitted. Ms. Dawn's marriage to a man who abused her in spite of her compliance or assertiveness, disproved this. Their ensuing painful custody battle motivated her to make a difference for women & children. www.wanetadawn.com "
