Rape Culture – It Wasn’t Your Fault – Manyi Anabor (Part 2)
Join us for today’s episode, where we continue our discussions with Manyi Anabor.
In part two of this series, we had further conversations about the impact of her experiences with child sexual and physical abuse in her life. We also talk about how she sought help through the form of therapy. Although there are still misconceptions about therapy, such as people thinking that it’s fake, it doesn’t work, or it just shows weakness. For people who have undergone therapy, it was their way out of the dark place that has been haunting them.
