Madeleine Black has an unusual personal story which she uses to inspire and motivate others.  She chose to forgive the two men who gang raped her at thirteen years old and she shares her story for many reasons:

End the shame, stigma and silence surrounding sexual violence.

Enable others to find their voice, whatever their story is.

Encourage others to live their life courageously too.

Make people question their own thinking and mindset.

She wants to show how changing her mindset tapped into her resilience and transformed her life.

Ultimately inspire hope and show people that we are all so much stronger than we think we are. 

She wants people to know that it’s not what happens to us that is important but what we do with it.

Encourage others to see we can get past anything that happens to us in both our professionally &  personal life.

Violence against women and girls will not be solved at the click of a button.Sabina Nessa was just minutes away from her home. She deserved to walk the streets without fear, without danger, and with the promise that she’ll make it home safe.But yet, women continue to feel unsafe on the streets. Women continue to feel unsafe in their own homes. And women continue to feel worried for the safety of their friends, sisters, daughters and mums.Women should not have to endlessly think of ways to manage their safety. We have been doing this all our lives.We are tired.We’ve said it before, and we will say it again. Violence against women and girls is a grave issue, deep-rooted in societal attitudes towards women. We will continue to support and campaign for women’s safety, but we need to see a whole system approach to challenge and destroy sexism, misogyny and discrimination.➡️ www.womensaid.org.uk/saysabinasname-womens-aid-call-for-justice/#SaySabinasName[Image description: White writing on a teal background reads: 'Women should not have to endlessly think of ways to manage their safety.
