How triggers affect rape survivors

“It was a trauma, and it’s a trauma that will have permanent impact on my life,” says Winnie M Li, a film producer and novelist, who was raped in 2007 in Northern Ireland.

Winnie is just one of the seven people who feature in Life After Sexual Violence, a seven part series which throws a spotlight on the reality of life after a sex attack.

In this episode, the group of seven survivors describe how triggers of their experiences of rape can resurface in the small, mundane details of everyday life, months and years after it has happened.
