'If anyone had told me a few years ago that one day I would be giving radio and TV interviews, speaking publicly or writing a book; I would never have believed them.  But after sharing my story publicly for the first time in September 2014 I realised that my voice and words are now my strength and I will continue to speak out against sexual violence for all those who can’t find their voice yet...' - Madeleine Black (Read more..)

Unbroken

In Unbroken, Madeleine tells her deeply moving and empowering story, as she discovers  that life is about how a person chooses to recover from adversity.  We are not defined by what knocks us down – we are defined by how we get back up.

Violently gang raped when she was thirteen years old, and raped three more times before the age of eighteen, Madeleine has experienced more trauma in her life than most ever will. Living in a state of shock and self-loathing, it took her years of struggle to confront the buried memories of that first attack and begin to undo the damage it wrought, as men continued to take advantage of her fragility in the worst possible way.

Yet, after growing up with a burden no teenager should ever have to shoulder, she found the heart to carry out the best revenge plan of all; leading a fulfilling and happy life.  For Madeleine, forgiveness was the key.  True forgiveness takes genuine effort.  It takes a real desire to understand those who have done us so much harm.  It is the ultimate act of courage.

Madeleine Black

Rob of the Green
Hi all,

My guest this week is Madeleine Black. Her story is one of dealing with a violent rape, dealing with the pain that brought, facing these memories and coming out the other side stronger.

Here's a short clip from the podcast out yesterday. It's really worth listening to the full show.
