 OVER 20,000 

 WOMEN HAVE BEEN 

 POSITIVELY IMPACTED 

 BY THE VOICE PROJECT 

THE PROJECT

An abused woman lives in fear, unable to predict when the next attack will come. She may become isolated from friends and family, and increasingly dependent on her abuser. In these circumstances it can be very hard to make sense of what is really happening. Over time her self-esteem may be worn down, like water dripping on a stone. She may start to believe her abuser’s insults. She may blame herself for the abuse, or deny that it is taking place. She may ignore it, hoping that her partner – the man she loves – will change.

                   

           We want to make a change.
