How to use victim in a sentence?

  1. Faith Rodgers:

    I trusted Robert Sylvester Kelly and Robert Sylvester Kelly betrayed my trust, once I recognized my worth, I knew I had to walk away. No woman should be victim-shamed, harassed or retaliated against because she... has spoken her truth.

  2. Ralph Waldo Emerson:

    Men's actions are too strong for them. Show me a man who has acted, and who has not been the victim and slave of his action.

  3. Eleni Linos:

    As technology becomes more sophisticated and people start to use their phones interactively for an increasing number of daily tasks, it would not be surprising if they also increasingly turned to electronic devices for help with personal, health and safety issues, the phone user needs to retain the power to choose what happens. Every domestic violence and sexual assault situation is different, and the phone won't know if the abuser suddenly re-enters the room, grabs the phone, or starts listening in. It's tempting to say that the phone should automatically dial 9-1-1, but that could lead to an increase in the number of accidental calls, limit emergency services' capacity to respond to actual urgent calls, and worst of all might tip off the perpetrator that his or her victim is trying to get help.

  4. Eric Dreiband:

    I hope that today's sentence brings some measure of justice and healing to the victim, who suffered untold trauma as a result of the defendants' heinous crimes, the defendants stole her childhood and her labor for years, enriching themselves while leaving her with pain and an uncertain future.

  5. Lucy Cooke:

    In the situations where you have male coercion, which isn't uncommon amongst certain species, the female is not as big a victim as you think she is, because she's in control of who fertilizes her eggs, and as far as evolution is concerned, that's all that matters.
