Andrea's story, part 1: extracts from a book I made on male partner abuse
Updated: May 12, 2019
A few years ago I created an illustrated book on male partner abuse which was commissioned by a women's refuge outside of Paris, called "Le Relais 77". The content and stories were written with a team of victims supported by the refuge, professionals and partners who worked for the refuge. The team work was really an amazing experience and I hope to be able to renew such experiences in the future! Part of the book includes cartoons of stories of women who experienced abuse by a male partner. The three characters are fictional but they are inspired by the real experiences and lives of the victims who participated in the team and those who work to support them.
The first story is of Andrea, a young woman who meets her boyfriend at university.
It's all in French, I'm afraid I don't have any translation yet!
