It is important to tell your story. When you tell about your experience you are releasing it and when another girl reads your story she receives the knowledge that she is not alone. Girls are always surprised to find that there are others who are also surviving sexual abuse and who share similar feelings.

If you have survived rape, or incest, or any sexual violation, you may feel isolated in your feelings. The story section of our site is here to help you know that you are not alone. Girls survive and thrive after sexual abuse and you can too!
