Documentary series shares stories of women’s survival, hope, and activism

“It’s a miracle I’m alive”, says Maria Maldonado, from Argentina. Like many women across the world, she has survived years of abuse from an intimate partner. One in three women experience physical or sexual violence at least once in their life, a figure that has remained largely unchanged over the last decade. 

UN Women’s new documentary series “UNSILENCED: Stories of Survival, Hope and Activism”, aims to shed light on such violence against women and girls, while also presenting solutions and advocating for action.
