Reclaiming Voice

4 Mar 2020

In March 2020, Imkaan published "Reclaiming Voice: Minoritised Women and Sexual Violence". This national study provides unique insights into how minoritised women make sense of sexual violence and respond to such violations within a wider societal context of silencing and unspeakability, and specifically how this manifests for minoritised women based on their intersectional location.

The report contains detailed narratives on the help-seeking journeys of minoritised survivors, service responses and promising practice approaches from specialist women’s organisations across the ‘by and for’ BME VAWG and sexual violence sectors, as well as recommendations for improving policy and practice.
