HELP HER RECOVER BOOK PROJECT
"You're not a victim for sharing your story. You are a survivor setting the world on fire with your truth. And you never know who needs your light, your warmth, and raging courage." — Alex Elle
Speak Out and Help Her Recover: Real Stories of Hope and Healing from Survivors of Gender-Based Violence is a meaningful collection of important first-person real-life experiences.
This powerful book project amplifies the voices of 15 women from the ages of 18-80 who present true testaments of how they escaped violent circumstances, sharing their stories of wisdom, and practical steps for women who need to hear that their trauma does not have to define them, and they are not alone.
These writers are showing others that there is a way to live through and with trauma, to find a path to peace and power. This book will spread awareness, provide hope and serve as a valuable resource for prevention.
