02 July 2023: In April this year two brothers were convicted of the sexual assaults of more than 20 women at Christchurch bar Mama Hooch.
Sophie Brown was the first woman to file a police report against the brothers.
As a survivor of sexual assault from the Mama Hooch ordeal, Sophie is shifting the stigma by speaking up and sharing her lived experience to remove the taboo and break the inherent shackles of shame.
She tells her story and shares about the work she's doing as a Sexual Assault Impact Advocate, shifting the current systems, stigmas and shame to support survivors and educate communities on the impact, management and prevention of sexual assault.
