VAW: The Unspoken Words is a collection of short films featuring free-verse poetry and images expounding various forms of Violence Against Women or VAW. The collection is intended to become a springboard for discussing the realities and complexities of VAW which to this date, still often go unnoticed, if not trivialized or dismissed. The first set of videos were released by the PCW in 2017, during the 18-Day Campaign to End VAW. VAW in the Street and Public Places narrates the difficulties a woman gets to experience every day as she crosses the streets and utilizes different forms of transportation in the country. The woman’s musings revolve around her disappointments in the old-age culture of sexism and patriarchy, still hoping to achieve a more gender-fair community in the future.
