It's the journey, not the destination.
When someone has lived through gender-based violence or exploitation, what does it really take to heal? Here’s what we know for sure: True healing doesn’t happen easily. It doesn’t happen overnight. And it definitely doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It happens in community with other survivors, and with the economic support that is necessary for any person seeking to exit “the life.” Put another way: It’s not just about survivor strength. It’s also about social support. And that’s on all of us.
