In December 2012 I invited the women I interviewed for ‘Waiting for Someone to Listen’ to feedback about the experience of recording their stories.
What was the experience like?
‘It was as if I was waiting for someone to sit down and listen, as if something was in a pot and you took the lid off and let the steam out.’
‘It was a very interesting experience in many ways. Firstly, it felt a real privilege to be able to speak freely and honestly for a long time. Very few people know about me as a person. With this interview, I feel as if I have left a piece of me, my life with my son, my experiences and how I have coped with things, since he was born.’
Was there any lasting impact?
‘I like to feel I have left a legacy for my daughter.’
‘Yes, it was a big relief that I told my story. I feel that it may help someone out there and that’s a great feeling. I hope that hearing my story may encourage people to tell their stories.’
