Tell My Daughters exists to support healing for survivors of sexual assault. Born out of necessity, TMD provides a space for those seeking a stronghold. We have made it our task to ensure the empowerment of each survivor we meet, so that the next generation of women learn to live unafraid, and unabashedly aware of their worth.
Tell My Daughters to surround themselves with the brave and the bold.
To choose friends who are unashamed to be exactly who they are.
Friends who will cultivate creativity and kindness.
Friends, alongside whom, she will chase her most wild dreams.
We must tell them the truth: they must know that they will struggle. Each of us carries something heavy in our souls. But when they are truly known by someone, they will never be alone, even in their darkest days.
Around the world, poor women and girls between the ages of 15 and 44, are victims of everyday violence of domestic abuse and sexual violence — those two forms of violence account for more death and disability than malaria, than car accidents, than war combined. –
