Being raped at the age of 17, Ali Miller tried to hide what happened to her for years. However, one day she met a woman named Chantelle Baxter, who is the founder of a concept called Be Bangles, which makes bracelets that contain phrases meant to remind girls and women that they are important. Ms Baxter encouraged Ali Miller to share her rape story online. Ali at first disagreed but eventually gave in and her story went live in October of 2015. To Ali’s surprise, telling her story helped her to move on from what happened to her. This made her (Ali) wonder if doing this (telling their story) could not help other women facing issues with grief and/or trauma. Thus ‘I Am Movement’ which is an online photography project for women to share their stories with others facing similar ordeals, was born.
Below I shall be sharing with you 15 inspirational images and stories of real women, quoted directly off of the ‘I Am Movement’ Website and Instagram.
