Description

CAN A MAN BE A FEMINIST? CAN A MAN TELL A WOMAN'S PAINFUL STORY?

The stark and dramatic reading of Voices from Violence. A Woman's Journey to Self-Healing by Calvin Wilson

  • Unafraid She welcomed Death. Almost being strangled was the final straw. An elderly woman's unsolicited kindness brought her to Church. Instead of comfort, the Bible was weaponised for terror.
  • Her family's love and care started the journey to recovery. One on one with the psychologist was silent, painful and slow. Group therapy offered energy and hope, but the violence intruded in a surprising and unsettling way.
  • She could only speak about her suffering in the abstract. Shamefully She provoked his violence to enjoy afterwards his compassionate love making, but the brutality of his manhood told a different story.
  • The violence infected her young children who grew strong in their love and hate for her passive acceptance.
  • Despite her hopes, the cycle of violence was set to continue. In protecting his sister and mother, her twelve-year-old son was waiting in the darkness, full of hate, love and determination, with the knife under his pillow.
