My Dignity

Dignity is central to our being, and in our decisions and interactions. We invite you to read the Dignity Set in any sequence. Any book. Any page. 

My Dignity - My body is mine is an information and reflection resource about sexualised violence.

This resource is designed to share information and reveal reflections for any person who may be experiencing, or who has experienced sexualised violence, and for anyone who may be responding. 

Intimate Dignity is a reflection resource about insights and experiences of intimate dignity and indignity.

This resource reflects on the importance of experiences of intimacy, dignity and sexuality. Experiencing and making meaning of intimate dignity and indignity involves multiple, complex and strategic considerations. 

Reproductive Dignity is a reflection resource about insights and experiences of reproductive dignity and indignity.

This resource reveals the importance of reproductive dignity. Experiencing and making meaning of reproductive health, reproductive justice, violence and safety involves multiple, complex and strategic considerations. 

The insights revealed in these resources are not representative of all people, families or communities. Women and girls are disproportionately impacted by violence and abuse. The use of gendered terms reflect the descriptions directly used in the excerpts featured.

Our thanks to every person who contributed insights for the benefit of many.

There are many strategic considerations people have when deciding if, when and how to tell someone about experiences of violence and abuse. We explore more about talk and silences in the booklet talk. You may be thinking about talking to a friend, family member, colleague, manager, service or someone else. Regardless of who you speak with, it is important they understand that your dignity and safety are central to how you live and make decisions. It is important that they follow your lead.
