Globally, one in four girls experiences sexual abuse. This situation gets dire as 27% of women between the ages of 15 – 49 have been abused by their partners worldwide, and about 736 million have experienced violence in their life.

These situations are of concern, as many cases go unreported and under-reported. Our best chance of changing the current narrative and realities of women is to use the tools of storytelling.

Stories By Her, directed by the award-winning Damilola Orimogunje and written by Chidera Muoka, casts a spotlight on the dire situation of women as true stories of violence women have faced in 2021 inspired the short film.

Although their stories have different outcomes, each as heartbreaking as the other, it shows how there is a brief respite for women in a world where they have to navigate around these dangers and possibilities of assault.

Stories By Her premiered on Thursday, 25 November, at 6 pm on the House of ZETA YouTube channel.

Watch the short film below, and share it as we move towards eliminating the violence against women globally.
