Violence of Silence

20.06.2016 / Created by FPDFPAF

This film highlights 8 testimonies of women with various disabilities, victims of violence. As brutal as violence, it denounces the daily life experienced by 80% of women with disabilities. This project is supported by eminent female figures such as Anne Hidalgo, Françoise Laborde, Nicole Croisille, Roselyne Bachelot and others who have offered their voice. Through this short film, the association "Women for the Saying, Women for Action" and its president Maudy Piot, intend to denounce this societal tragedy that we never talk about. These women suffer the double trouble of being women and disabled in a society that does not support weakness and does not consider them as full citizens. If the society does not hear about this violence, it is because often these women cannot speak. Their words are silenced by fear, shame and lack of self-esteem.
