‘Say the word’

Say the word‘ is an ongoing collaborative project that has brought together survivors of sexual assault, abuse and rape. What started out as a stand alone blog post has now evolved into a collection of stories from men and women around the world.

The book was first published in May 2020 with the title ‘Why do we find it so difficult to say the word rape?’. This has since been changed to ‘Say the word’. All proceeds from the sale of the book go to Rape Crisis England & Wales.

We will continue to take submissions for future books, we don’t ever want to deny someone the chance to share their story once they have found that courage.

Please feel free to join us on Facebook in our group ‘Say the word’.

‘Say the word’ is in the early stages of being turned into a stage production. We are looking to obtain funding to move this project forward and have set up a Go Fund Me. If you’d like to donate click here and please do share!

If you would like any further information, if you could help with the stage production process or you would like to submit a piece for the next edition then please fill out the form below.
