Here’s what people are saying about “Breaking the Silence”

“Listening to the Feminist Lens program right now –

Astounding!  Such powerful voices – every story, poem, and song is deeply sad, haunting, piercingly melancholy and I have been moved to tears.

I pray that all who listen to this show are compelled to continue to stand strong, and create powerful testimony.

Programs like this are inspirational.

Each story went right to my heart, and the way in which they were weaved together with the music had a profound impact in the way that I heard, felt and saw the devastating impact of rape and abuse.

I will share this link.

…Thank you!

~Janet Goldblatt Holmes, member of The Voices and Faces Project – Canada
