I Asked My Abuser to Talk on Film. He Said Yes

Attiya Khan Attiya Khan

I am making a documentary called A Better Man that is based on a conversation I had with an ex-partner who physically abused me over 20 years ago. We lived together when we were teenagers. Since I escaped that relationship, I have been an advocate for women who have experienced domestic violence. I asked the man who hurt me every day for two years to discuss the abuse while being filmed. He said yes. If we truly want to end violence against women, we need new solutions. My personal experience, my professional life, and my heart tell me that empowering men to change must be part of the picture. Let's step up and make it happen.
