Real Women Real Stories (Video-Dokumentationen von Frauen, die sexualisierte Gewalt überlebt haben)
Real Women Real Stories is a platform for women who recount personal stories of trauma they have survived, including rape, sexual assault, sex trafficking, and beyond. Some of our stories are painful. But all of them need to be heard. Some of the videos on our YouTube channel have received millions of views and thousands of comments. Most have been posted on news sites around the world and shared countless times on social media. It has changed women's lives as their stories have received international attention. Their voices are being heard. And they are changing the world.
You may have watched our videos and the women we work with. We firmly believe that allowing women a platform to tell their own stories is a powerful force for changing the oppressive attitudes, laws and violence that harm women worldwide.
The recent changes over at YouTube have pulled out the rug from under us and Women's & Activism channels like ours have been hit the hardest. The algorithms did not get any better at knowing the difference between a channel fighting violence against women and one that promotes it. We are not compromised by corporate money or beholden to advertisers or access to the powerful, because we do not want to sanitize our content. So now more than ever, Real Women Real Stories and its staff need your support to continue making women's voices heard.
Time and time again the mainstream media continues to ignore the real women's issues, reinforce the status quo and propagate fear, powerlessness and division amongst us. What if more of us decided to take the matter into our own hands and report on what is really going on while being a source of inspiration driving others to be the change they wish to see in the world? If you feel drawn to this path, please donate and help us make more movies about women, and unveil what will otherwise remain hidden.
