Enable others to find their voice. A mission to end the shame, stigma and silence surrounding sexual violence
FEE : £1k – £3k+

TOPICS:

Madeleine Black has an unusual personal story which she uses to inspire and motivate others.  She chose to forgive the two men who gang raped her at thirteen years old and she shares her story for many reasons.

She wants to end the shame, stigma and silence surrounding sexual violence enabling others to find their voice, whatever their story is.  She wants people to know that it’s not what happens to us that is important but what we do with it.  She will show how changing her mindset tapped into her resilience and transformed her life, making people question their own thinking and encouraging them to see that there are always choices to make, and if we choose to, we can get past anything that happens to us in life both professionally and in our personal life.  She wants to encourage others to live their life courageously too; but ultimately she wants to inspire hope and show people that we are all so much stronger than we think we are.

Individual-Speakers-Quote

Madeleine's work is invaluable to a world where women are finally finding their voice.

Individual-Speakers-Quote

The sharing of her story publicly on The Forgiveness Project’s website in September 2014, opened many doors for Madeleine in ways she never imagined, and the invitations started to pour in.  Many women and men got in contact and explained how reading her story gave them strength, hope, and a different perspective of what’s possible in their lives.  She has taken part in both TV and radio interviews and has been invited to share her story of being gang raped as a teenager at conferences, book events, schools etc.  She recognises that she was a victim of a crime that left her silent for many years but has now found her voice and intends to use it.  Not just for her, but for so many who can’t find theirs yet.
