Shut Your Mouth - The Silence of Sexual Abuse
Show Notes

In today's episode we sit down with Jeeti and Kira Pooni of the film, Because We Are Girls. We talk about their film and their experience reaching out for help as sexual abuse victims. They were told to silence themselves but they are now sharing their story to set a new precedent, not only in the Canadian judicial system but also for women and girls everywhere. Although this story is not unique to south Asian families, we look at some of the cultural aspects in their upbringing that played a role in their experiences. Join me as we discuss this important topic and how we can use what they learned to inform our parenting.
