Outline

The victims of sexual violence in the church not only suffer from their traumatic experiences, but also at the same time struggle to call for help because of church cultures, religious myths, and the lack of gender awareness.  

To let the church community become more aware of the victims' needs, this project hopes to educate people through drama to increase their sensitivity to sexual violence and empathy for victims. By challenging the inherent thinking framework, the participants can gradually change their attitudes towards the issue and dispel myths about sexual violence.
