Raising Her Voice

Current statistics show that intimate partner violence is a prevalent form of gender-based violence. It has been identified by the World Health Organization as a major global public health concern, as it affects millions of people and can result in immediate and long-lasting health, social, and economic consequences. 

Without being addressed, the trauma of such experiences will remain with the person, and can even be passed on to those around them, or to a persons children or grandchildren. The aim of this documentary is to raise awareness of the global scale of this issue, as well as giving viewers the opportunity to learn from people who have lived in, and escaped, such situations.

  • Physical Abuse: Intentional or Threatened use of physical force, including pushing, hitting, cutting, punching, slapping, shoving, or strangulation
