100 Women I Know began with a desire to feel less alone. A personal project which has since developed into a growing organisation.
The project started with a questionnaire given to 100 young women, asking them about their experiences of rape and sexual assault. The results give a blunt, honest, unapologetic and emotional account of the realities that women face.
The research led 100 Women I Know founder, Phoebe Montague, to direct and produce a multi award-winning short documentary film comprised of intimate interviews with four rape survivors.
When approached by Break the Habit Press, a new independent publisher, the 100 Women I Know book was born.
Phoebe has now joined forces with a small team of survivors of sexual violence, together they host large scale events and intimate particapatory workshops.
This is a movement with a mission to strengthen solidarity between all survivors and initiate open conversation about sexual violence, mental health and well-being.
92 out of the 100 Women asked, said
they had been pressured or forced into sexual activity
