#MeToo: Rape and sexual assault survivors tell their stories

The Independent’s new series features seven survivors of rape and sexual assault, who describe the reality of life for the millions of survivors worldwide, from their recovery to their relationships.

“For the rest of my life, it’s going to affect how I live my life day to day, this is going to affect my friendships, my sexual relationships, everything,” says Faye White.

Faye is just one of the seven people who feature in the series that also covers the justice system, the media and triggers.

Our participants include Emily Jacob, 44, who runs ReConnected Life, a coaching and community program for survivors of sexual violence; Tanaka Mhishi, 24, a writer from London; Imogen Butler-Cole, 40, a theatremaker and performer with a solo stage show ‘Foreign Body’, about life after sexual assault; Sophie Yates Lu, 28, a campaigner from London; Winnie M Li, 38, a writer and film producer, whose new book ‘Dark Chapter’ won the Guardian’s “Not the Booker” prize; Faye White, 25, a journalist; and Alex Bryce, 34, a political advisor.
