Home is traditionally regarded as a safe space, a utopian and sacred site of refuge. This poetic ideal of the domestic space masks and hides the reality and lived experiences of the many who have suffered and still suffer intimate violent relationships within their home. Intimate violence and abuse is the most common crime in England and Wales. However, these crimes are significantly under-reported. This is the story of 4 women with very different background who have endured different forms of physical and non-physical abuse. These stories are about power and the control one person exerts over another. The aim of this project is to break the silence and challenge the stigma associated with those who undergo intimate violence.
