Director and Co-Founder
I’m S. I work in the not-for-profit sector. At the end of a horrendous year, my boyfriend violently raped me. The third child, the overachiever, the sick girl… of all the things I've been I never thought I'd be the domestic violence victim. It's a term I had reserved for vulnerable, adult women.
I’m G. I am a PhD student. Like a lot of victims, I was assaulted by someone I knew - a ‘friend’. The decision to report was not instinctual. It wasn’t until a friend asked me what I would do if my perpetrator had been a stranger, that I told her “I would be at the police station right now.”
