Speaking Our Truth

These four powerful and brave digital stories address intimate partner violence and gender-based violence, moving from victim to survivour, and the resilience it takes to survive in spite of deeply entrenched gender norms and structural obstacles. Whilst the stories are being shared in educational and advocacy settings, the primary aim of this storytelling process was to bring together clients from our Women’s Support Group as a means for them to connect with other women who share similar experiences, heal from past trauma, and gain confidence and storytelling skills.
