Silent Beauty

An autobiographical exploration of my family's history with child sexual abuse and a culture of silence


(Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network)

After sexual assault, it’s hard to know how to react. You may be physically hurt, emotionally drained, or unsure what to do next. You may be considering working with the criminal justice system, but are unsure of where to start. Learning more about what steps you can take following sexual violence can help ground you in a difficult time.

If you're a survivor and want to talk to someone anonymously, call the National Child Abuse Hotline at 800-422-4453, or the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800-656-4673, anytime 24/7.

Every survivor has an individual story and path. There isn’t a “right way” to disclose abuse. It’s what you’re comfortable with doing and what you’re ready for.

If you're interested in sharing your story with this project, have questions about the process of disclosing, or need resources for survivors in your area, please fill out the form below or contact Jasmin at:
