Great question! Using oral history for social change is an emerging movement that combines human rights advocacy and documentation with oral history principles of "history from the ground up." By allowing victims, survivors, and witnesses to fill in their version of the reality of their experiences, we change the story of the dominate discourse through adding narratives that have in the past been repressed, erased and silenced. This is particularly important when it comes to testimonials of sexual violence--too often, victims are shamed and stigmatized, forcing them to keep the experience secret; too commonly, victims who do speak out are not believed and punished for coming forward by being re-traumatized in having to "prove" the violation. The Cambodian Women's Oral History hopes to provide a safe forum for survivors to speak their truth, become part of the public record, and end impunity by shifting shame and blame onto perpetrators. This is a global contribution, because for each time a victim speaks she empowers another victim to come forward, whether that is in Cambodia, Syria, the DRC, or any territory where women are targeted for sexual abuse as a tactic to terrorize communities in armed conflict and under repressive regimes.
