Her Stories - Case studies from ActionAid's Violence Against Women project

This booklet tells the inspiring stories of women involved in ActionAid's 2 year Reducing Violence Against Women project, implemented in Burundi, DRC and Sierra Leone between 2008-2010.  These powerful testimonies bear witness to the strength and courage of women who have suffered violence at the hands of militias, governments and even their own families and communities, but have managed to turn their lives around through the work of ActionAid and partners.
