What is Somebody Must Say These Things?

Somebody Must Say These Things is an 8-part series that fully investigates Violence Against Women in Nova Scotia. By speaking with survivors and the women who make it their mission to end the issue for good, this podcast casts a stark, unapologetic light on our society’s continued insufficient acknowledgement of Violence Against Women. We follow the stories of survivors and examine the critical, unappreciated role of transition houses. We also speak with the boots-on-the-ground workers who fight everyday to help women and children in need. Together, their insights offer a new, clear perspective on the current status of abuse and violence in the province of Nova Scotia and what we need to do to ensure a brighter tomorrow.

Our hope is that by sharing their stories, you will become an advocate for change.
