She Matters creates advocacy campaigns using photography and video to capture the realities of life as a survivor of sexual violence. Campaigns are created to provide healing and support to survivors, while educating the public.



She Matters developed Survivor-Led Sensitivity Trainings to aid health care providers in understanding the struggles survivors face, while recommending suitable best practices to restore survivors faith in the medical system.

Support & Healing


Support and Healing is one of the pillars of the She Matters community. As a survivor-led organization we understand the trauma and pain experienced by survivors. We understand that there is no guide to healing, and the journey requires support and patience.

We’re here - every step of the way.
