‘You wanted it, though’.
‘This is a test. If you tell Mom we will both know you cannot be trusted’.
‘I love you’.
‘If you tell anyone, I’ll kill myself’.
‘Close your eyes. This might hurt a bit’.
These are the words that were said to victims of sexual assault by their abusers.
They’ve been highlighted as part of a campaign called Project Unbreakable, whose images have made headlines across the world.
The photos show those individuals holding placards with handwritten notes: the words they were told as they were abused. It’s the brainchild of a nineteen year-old photography student in New York called Grace Brown. Brown was inspired to start the campaign after a friend confided that she had been abused and that her attacker said she had ‘wanted it’.
