In 2012, we collected, edited and published a book of first-person stories by sexual assault survivors. We didn't try to tell their stories for them. We just made sure to be careful about which truths could and couldn't be confirmed.
Never mind that it's Woody Allen—to kids who've been through this, the story's all too familiar.
What you are about to read is a selection of eight first-person stories chosen from our first ebook that all capture, in their own way, the long and turbulent recovery people affected by sexual abuse must endure.
"The Survivors Project" is a compendium of more than 50 personal essays about the challenges associated with healing from sexual abuse.
