She was asking for it.
She should have known better.
Bekezela (persevere), she was told.
It’s because I love you, he said.

Sue Nyathi, the editor of When Secrets Become Stories: Women Speak Out, will be in conversation with Pamela Power, Senzeni Ndebele, Robyn Porteous and Leigh Joy Mansel-Pleydell.
Many women are overcome by a sense of shame when they are sexually or emotionally abused but sharing what was once a secret, helps to break shame’s hold. ‘I am not defined by the abuse I have suffered,’ writes Nyathi. ‘I am not a victim; I am a survivor.’
In When Secrets Become Stories, women from all walks of life, across racial lines, age and income demographics, boldly speak out.
