Women in the creative groupwork for this research produced images and captions for other women they imagined making domestic violence journeys in the future – wanting to encourage and inspire them in their journeys from abuse to freedom.

Her message to the abuser was:

Her message to herself and her sons was:

A picture can tell a powerful story – a way for women’s voices to be heard. Many more images and captions are in the report from this research.
