"Would you like to help end violence against women? "Someone in your Life" is looking for artists to help with our crowdfunding campaign!
45% of women in the UK experience sexual assault, domestic violence or stalking. That's practically one in every two women subjected to violence simply for being a woman. But numbers are too abstract; too easy to ignore. So here's what I want you to do. Walk into a room, any room, and count the women. Now try to imagine that half of those women in the room with you, half of any arbitrary group of women, will have experienced horrific acts of gender-based violence at some point in their life. Think of the women in your life: your mother, your sister, your partner, your daughter, your best friend. Half of them have or will at some point experience violence because they are women. This not about some abstract 45%, some women "out there". This is about someone in your life.
Someone In Your Life aims to give women a space to speak out and tell their stories so that they no longer live in silence and shame; so that we can all look beyond the stereotypes; so that other women know they are not alone; and so that we all begin to understand the horrific impact gender-based violence is having on individual women and society as a whole.
We are currently looking for artists to work with us to create original artwork for our upcoming crowdfunding campaign. If you want to help end violence against women, then please get in touch with Mili (MiliSiyL

Please help spread the word!
