There is no right or wrong when it comes to how a survivor of sexual violence should act, feel, process, or heal. Some folks find sharing their story can be helpful to process feelings, cope, break silence, be validated, connect to wider struggles against sexual violence, and much more.
Here are just a few of the many brave and fierce survivors who have shared their stories in many ways:
- VAW Learning Network’s Survivor Interviews
- I Believe You. It’s Not Your Fault.
- Project Unbreakable
- 1 in Four
- Julie Lalonde speaking about her experience of abuse
- Sexual Assault Support Centre Waterloo Region – Transforming Lives
- It’s Complicated-ish
