“Don’t Silence Me” is an anthem by UK singer-songwriter Sadie Jemmett. Written for her friend, actress Mhairi Morrison, who was sexually assaulted at the beginning of her career in Paris, by an extremely influential film director.
Following a successful fundraising campaign, Sadie and Mhairi, together with filmmaker Jenn Page, are now in the process of making a video for the song in the hope that it will inspire a movement of supportive change and dialogue for any woman who has dealt with sexual harassment or survived sexual assault.
This project is about shining light into the lonely darkness, releasing oppressive shame, and unleashing our constricted freedom through inner strength, sisterhood and community. Together, we use our empowered voices. Together, we trust again. We heal. We step forward into the light and live with joy.
We will be releasing the video on or around March 5th, to coincide with International Women’s Day (March 8th). During the week of the release we will have a red carpet premiere event in Los Angeles along with a panel discussion around the topic of Me Too, What’s Next ?
Details TBC and will be announced on this website.
