Victoria, British Columbia

[Part 2 of 2] Kelly Favro learns she is not alone. Along the way, she meets other sexual assault survivors who also discovered publication bans had been put on their names without their consent - including Jade Neilson and Samantha Geiger. They all experienced negative impacts in completely separate ways, but they agreed that no other sexual assault survivors should have to go through the same experience of law-enforced silence and isolation that they’ve been told is for their own good.

Special thanks to Kelly Favro, Jade Neilson and Samantha Geiger.
