This is the story of our unique journey to ten countries, where we investigated the violence that kills and harms women.


“Have you got any children he knows aren’t his? Does he spy on you, or leave threatening messages?”


“When I started working I was naive, and my aim was to have families reunited.”

“We see a lot of trifling matters here at the same time as other victims don’t even report serious crimes such as incest.”
“What we see is a state which does not take responsibility for its people.”  
“The doctor cut into the girl’s genitals, but in the next moment everything had begun to look wrong, very wrong.”
