Public Transport by Elyssa Rider

Elyssa shares with us a short comic on the all too familiar anxiety we can feel on public transport. If you’ve ever felt someone staring at you for too long, or felt the body of strangers too close to your own, we hope you’ll find comfort in Elyssa’s apt imagination of the situation…

Silent Snow

Pea/Phoebe of @grump.pea.illustration shares with us visual prose of her and her fellow sisterhood’s lifelong experience in victimhood, survival and the overarching silence of them.

A Fate Worse Than Death

‘I questioned where was the God that was meant to love and protect me? Why had he allowed this? How could he have let me be sacrificed on the alter of sexual violence?

Top TV Shows: Winter (hibernation) Edition

For instalment two of the Top TV Shows (for bad days) I compiled a list of the best shows that allow us to bundle under piles of blankets, close the curtains and not leave the house for the whole weekend. Because when you’re sad, traumatised AND cold - who would ever want to leave the house?!

Must Watch: Killing Eve

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the genius behind Fleabag, brings us an incredible story of assassins, champagne, queer romantic tension and huge pink dresses in this amazing representation of the female gaze.

The What's Underneath Project

The idea of watching strangers strip off and tell their life stories might seem strange and a bit daunting, but the results of the series have been incredible. The interviewees are diverse, from a plethora of backgrounds - some famous, some not, some old and some young - and all incredibly inspirational. 

The Importance of Jessica Jones

Jessica Jones can often be a hard watch, as Jessica’s survival is raw and real, and although she may be a super hero/human, her experiences of recovery and dealing with the aftermath of abuse/assault are highly representative (and triggering) of the real experience.
