In a time where the news tells tales of accused rape and those who speak out are ridiculed, sent death threats, shamed, made to feel unsafe... this project is all the more important and necessary. To provide a permanent home for those voices who refuse to stay silent, despite this. Despite the trauma we endure.
This is an influential time for us to speak out.
In this collection, you'll find over 100 voices - stories by and about sexual abuse and assault survivors, told in creative nonfiction, poems and flash.
We are survivors and there are many steps on this journey. Empowerment is a process. We honor every step, the fledgling ones and the dark hopelessness too.
Be gentle as you delve inside.
