How far would you go to tell a story?
| Nine years ago, writer and Voices and Faces Project founder Anne K. Ream and documentary photographer Patricia Evans embarked on a unique journey. |
Their goal was to bear witness to the stories of sexual violence survivors who have been shaped – but refuse to be defined – by what has been done to them. Their passion was to put names and faces on an issue that too often leaves its victims silent, and invisible. The resulting book of narrative and photographic profiles, Lived Through This: Listening to the Stories of Sexual Violence Survivors, is now available.
Praised by V-Day founder Eve Ensler as “heart-stopping and beautifully rendered,” Lived Through This defies conventional wisdom about life in the wake of sexual violence.
Part personal history of Anne Ream’s own experience rebuilding her life after violence, part memoir of a multi-country, multi-year journey spent listening to survivors, Lived Through This is both deeply personal and resolutely political. From Anne’s insistently resolute opening essay to its final, deeply moving story, this is a book about truth, but also about hope. The accomplished and courageous women and men profiled in Lived Through This are, in the words of the author, “living reminders of all that remains possible in the wake of the terrible.”
