Tantra Tees is about empowering women to take back their strength, to say “Enough is ENOUGH, this IS abuse, I CAN have a better life!” Many victims of domestic violence are shattered. You can see it in their bodies, in their stature and mannerisms, in how they approach life and deal with men, and in how they relate to their own body’s sexuality and presence. The Tantra Tee tee-shirt line is meant to inspire, to raise hope, and to call to action.
Buying a Tantra Tee supports the KOVA Foundations efforts in eradicating domestic violence through awareness, treatment and community.
I am bearing my body and soul saying yes I have been beaten, abused, and raped . . . but I am strong, I am beautiful, and help is out there. YOU make the choice VICTIM or VICTORIOUS. I am Sara Kova founder of Tantra Tees and Kova Foundation; I am NOT a Victim, I AM VICTORIOUS!!
The primary mission is to empower and support women. Kova Foundation aims to create a paradigm shift in our cultures views of abuse, and the vital need to heal from the trauma. We act as a change agent to societal norms by raising awareness and providing re-education regarding definitions and what constitutes abuse.
Domestic Violence, Sexual harassment, and Emotional Abuse are an epidemic! They have no social or economical barriers, yet society tells us that domestic violence is a "low class" problem, and it must be physical abuse to even be considered as such, Sexual Harassment is only a "Work Place" problem and can be fixed by seeing someone in HR, and Emotional Abuse (the silent killer) is not even being addressed. These are all lies our society has spoon feed us, we must re-educate ourselves on what abuse is, how to stop it, and then how to heal the trauma.
It is time for the abuse to stop! It takes more than just getting away from the abuser for the cycle of abuse to stop. If the abused does not heal from the Trauma endured the abuse cycle will continue in some cases the abuse is directed toward others, but in most cases the abuse becomes self inflicted.
