"I am giving you ten years for you to change and if you don't I will leave you" - Annie Kashamura
Trigger warning: domestic violence
Gender Equality specialist and activist Annie Kashamura joins Samantha Baines for a powerful conversation about Annie's inspiring story of overcoming abuse. Beginning with her marriage in the Congo, Annie explains some of the laws that trap women in difficult situations in her home country as well discussing her eventual asylum to Canada with her children. A shocking and brutally honest discussion about the depths of marriage horror, violence and the uplifting freedom after a battle to survive. A truly important listen and a surprisingly positive one too.
