Being a new Christian, Brandie sought out a Christian man as a partner. After several years of sexual assault, psychological and physical abuse by him, she came to find out that he was engaged to her but living with another woman. He persuaded her to stay using biblical manipulation and the abuse only escalated. She went to the church for hep and they turned against her. They embraced her abuser who plays a large part in the worship team at the church and with the youth.
Now Brandie works to help support other women who find themselves in the same situation. Learn more on her blog here: https://speakout4others.wordpress.com/
A Woman’s Place is a two part initiative combining story telling elements of narrative film and short documentary clips of real stories to raise awareness about domestic abuse #1StoryAtaTime
We are currently raising funds for production of the feature length fiction film, A Woman’s Place.
Videos in the docu-series are part of an oral history of survivors of domestic abuse, with the purpose of raising awareness. None of these stories have been verified. They have been edited for clarity.
