True Stories About Domestic Violence

The Australian Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria hosts a set of written stories organized by different themes: stories from women, women in lesbian relationships, women with disabilities, young people, and men. Many of these written testimonials follow a similar structure, first describing experiences, then “How I coped,” “How the situation changed,” “What helped me,” and “What I would say to others.” The young people’s stories are linked out to a separate campaign, Love: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

Freedom Stories

This small collection of videos is the product of a novel production approach: young and promising Australian filmmakers were enlisted to create short films that tell stories of young people “coming to terms with their sexuality and gender.” The resulting films have high production value, and are presented on a website that simultaneously presents the story and presents the young filmmaker.

1 in 3

The 1 in 3 campaign takes its name from the statistic that 1 in 3 women will have an abortion during their lifetime. It collects written and video testimonials by women who have had abortions, and describes its rationale as so: “By encouraging women who have had abortions to end their silence, share their stories, and start a new and more personal conversation about abortion in our society, the 1 in 3 Campaign will help create a more enabling cultural environment for the policy and legal work of the abortion rights movement.” The campaign is a project of Advocates for Youth, an organization focused on reproductive and sexual health for young people in the US and globally. The written stories are aggregated into a book.
