To Sandi Timmins, equality for women includes the right to be free from domestic violence – and defending that right is everyone’s duty. As executive director of House of Ruth Maryland, Timmins has increased outreach and built innovative training programs for communities, professions, employers and even past abusers. “As an agency, there is only so much we can do alone,” she says.
