Told in their own words, the stories of New Zealand women who have lived in - and escaped - abusive relationships.
Jackie Clark, a kindergarten teacher by training, founded the charity The Aunties in 2013 with the aim of working with women who are living with or have lived with domestic violence. She provides these women with material needs like clothing, food or money by fundraising, often through social media. Her big heart and take-no-shit attitude has won her a league of loyal fans and followers, and in 2018 she was the Supreme Winner at the Women of Influence Awards. She lives in Manurewa, Auckland.
