We'd like to say a huge thank you to each of 102 brave women who shared their testimonies with us, and we'll be keeping them here on the blog for people to read, share and learn from.

For work we are doing, we need to speak to female survivors of sexual violence about their feelings around smear tests. It doesn't matter if you have or haven't had a smear, as many women can feel very anxious about them. We are working with health practitioners to improve the NHS' understanding of survivors' needs, especially around the issue of smear tests. Please get in touch by emailing We would love to hear from you, and improve things with your help!
