On this week’s episode, we speak to Emily Duyên Đặng about her photovoice gallery project, Overcoming this Grief: Stories from Vietnamese women surviving family violence in Australia. Through photos and text presented in Vietnamese and English, these women share their experiences of migration, family violence and finding safety. In this conversation, Emily talks about her research into family violence within the Vietnamese context here in so-called Australia, she shares stories from the women who participated in the photovoice gallery, and we touch on the systemic injustices that can place survivors in further harm.
