Becoming HER was featured on iTunes New and Noteworthy and Features the Voices of 7 Bozeman Survivors
We Are HER — Becoming HER, a podcast for survivors of abuse or assault, features the stories of seven Bozeman survivors, which was launched by local nonprofit We Are HER.
Becoming HER is hosted by HAVEN’s outreach coordinator Emily Kempe. Each week, she has a conversation with a different survivor. Together, they discuss each survivor’s personal story, including their path toward healing, and educate their audience on intimate partner violence. The podcast gives an inside perspective on what domestic violence really looks like in Bozeman.
The podcast was also featured on iTunes “New and Noteworthy” section, which has given it an international audience.
“The podcast is important not only because it provides a platform for survivors to share their story, but also because of the medium itself,” said Kempe. “Our podcast format allows survivors to have more control over how they tell their story, which increases safety. I truly believe in Becoming HER, and I hope that it provides support to survivors and educated communities all over the world.”
You can find the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, and other popular podcasting platforms.
