Her Say, told in their own words, the stories of New Zealand women who have lived in - and escaped - abusive relationships. Hear Jackie Clark discuss Her Say, a powerful book that holds a collection of stories told by New Zealand women who have lived with and escaped an abusive relationship. It’s a book for all women, showing how owning our stories gives us the power to write daring new endings. Martha, one of the contributing writers, will also be present, with the conversation guided by Dr Rebecca Stringer from the University of Otago’s Sociology, Gender Studies and Criminology programme. Her Say will be available for sale at the event, with all royalties going to support The Aunties, a grassroots charity helping women to rebuild their lives after a period of trauma. The Dunedin Writers & Readers Festival will be donating $5 from each ticket sold to Dunedin Pride’s Alphabet Soup programme.
