A new art project aims to give women a voice to share their experiences of violence, sexual abuse or harassment.

Created by Wolverhampton producer and artist Dawinder Bansal, the Let Her project invites all women to contribute their stories anonymously on a postcard. Each card will be curated before being shared online to a new Let Her website and social media platforms. It is hoped the postcards will also feature in an exhibition.



Dawinder says: "With the horrific murders of Sarah Everard and Sabina Nessa, as well as the recent conviction of R Kelly for sex trafficking, it's been a harrowing time and the news headlines will have been triggering for many women."

And she adds: "The past month isn't the first time there's been a huge volume of stories of male violence against women. I had the idea for Let Her in the aftermath of #MeToo – many promises were made back then, but this hasn't stopped the problem of male violence. For me, the Let Her art project has now become more urgent and necessary than ever before and I hope the platform will give women a way to express or share their experiences. If this isn't what art is for, what is?"

Let Her aims to be a safe space for women to share their experiences anonymously through artistic expression. While it is not designed to be a support service the Let Her website links to organisations that can provide support to women looking for help.

The development of Let Her was co-commissioned by the Barbican Centre, London and Oldham Coliseum Theatre and is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
