I'M STILL STANDING: D.C. Sniper's Ex-Wife And Her Courageous Struggle For Community12:40 AM
While married to the D.C. sniper John Allen Muhammad, Mildred Muhammad was intimidated into silence about the domestic abuse she suffered.
During the trial, negative media attention and threats from people in her community created a toxic atmosphere of victim-blaming, even after it came out that Mildred was his intended target.
"I'm Still Standing" is a gritty, raw and emotional account beginning with Mildred's choice to turn to isolation as a way of protecting herself and her children.
Author, speaker, advocate and survivor, Mildred Muhammad has risen to become a voice for other victims and survivors, especially for the 80% who do not have physical scars to prove they are victims.
The D.C. sniper John A. Muhammad went on a three-week rampage with the intention of eventually finding Mildred and killing her.
Her critically acclaimed memoir "Scared Silent: When the One You Love Becomes the One You Fear" was published by Simon & Schuster in 2009.
