  • Summary:

    Andrea, Femi, Sophie: three women, three destinies. Each of them crossed paths with a violent man who turned their lives upside down.

    Franco-British Feminist Anne Billows looks at domestic abuse and how it can destroy and how you can get help.

     Andrea meets Thomas at university. He is handsome and charismatic but ends up abusing and manipulating her.

    Femi meets Patrick at choir practice. He’s a gem, who turns out to be an extremely violent control freak.

    After chatting  on a dating site, Sophie falls in love with Julien, an invasive and egocentric man.

    Thomas, Patrick and Julien are aggressors.

    What strategies does the attacker implement? Are there typical attacker profiles? Why do women stay? How can we challenge preconceived ideas about domestic violence?

    Manipulation, physical violence, sexual assault… In France, in 2020, a woman died every 3.5 days as a result of domestic violence.

    These three portraits, based on true stories, reflect our society. Much more than a testimony, this comic strip addresses in depth the phenomena of control and domestic violence. To inform, alert and (re)act.
