In the most recent edition of Porter Magazine, Amber Heard has written an open letter about her personal experience of domestic abuse. This is the second time Heard has candidly spoken about domestic violence, following her recent PSA video the Danish Girl actress featured in for #GirlGaze Project.
Amber Heard and ex-husband Johnny Depp recently settled their long-winded divorce, after Heard accused the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor to be abusive throughout their four-year relationship.
In the letter, Heard explains: "You may have suffered alone behind closed doors, but you are not alone. You need to know that. I want to remind you of your strength, a strength that is multiplied by the number of women who stand silently behind you-a truth that allowed me to break down the doors I once found myself behind."
"No matter how terrible or terrifying surviving trauma may be, unfortunately, it can pale in comparison to what follows," she writes. "It's no wonder so many of us feel we have to keep quiet or risk our own safety to try to maintain our dignity by quietly enduring. The fear of being ostracized from society is just about the most terrifying prospect there is."
"We have inherited far too much to be resigned to accept in justice and together we are much too strong to excuse it any longer."
