Sharing our Stories to the Streets and Back

Amanda is represented a group of twelve women supported by the Lighthouse Project who came together to form a collective and share their experiences. They have all been involved in street prostitution in Hull and their recently published book An Untold Story tells the stories of their lives through poetry, interviews, prose and artwork. In her talk Amanda tells her story in her own way and in her own words to shatter the stigma and create understanding for women with similar experiences who face neglect and marginalisation.
