‘THE EXPERIENCE OF A RESISTANCE’ is an ongoing experiential platform for sharing the experience of resisting in various societies. Currently this platform is devoted to the experience of violence against women in Iran. This platform is an open-based space for activists, internet users and others, who think that by publishing their experiences of violence, they can resist against what has been imposed on them.
The initial idea of this website was conceptualized based on the outcomes of several workshops which held by the ‘Change for Equality’ Campaign during November 2010 in different cities in Iran. This visual/object-based atlas of violence experiences is able to be uploaded either by activists or website visitors aiming to show how sharing writing/storytelling/illustration through focusing on an object which mirrors violence or resistance against violence can help others to resist. This website has been created in order to make a live archive of experiences of resistance by women.
THE EXPERIENCE OF A RESISTANCE is currently shaped by:
One Million Signatures for the Repeal of Discriminatory Laws (Change for Equality) Campaign.
