Take it as a Compliment

Take it as a Compliment
Take it as a Compliment is an award-winning collection of anonymous stories, received online, through emails, and interviews. 

Each story is told in a different illustrative style to relfect the unique voices. Covering acts such as sexual violence, public sexual harassment, domestic abuse and child abuse, this is a reminder for survivors that they are not alone and a call for all of us to take action. Sexual violence is not a compliment.
