The Audacity to Heal: A Public Conversation about Surviving Sexual Assault
The award-winning multi-media performance, Story of a Rape Survivor (SOARS). SOARS’s creators, Scheherazade and Salamishah Tillet, discuss the role of the arts can play in ending sexual violence, the specific challenges that victims face when they want to break silence around sexual violence, and how secondary victims of sexual violence, such as family members, friends, and intimate partners, can become allies to sexual assault survivors.
