Madeleine Black, Writer and Podcaster: Unbroken

‘It’s not what happens to us that is important, but what we do with what happens to us and if we choose to, we can get past anything that happens to us in life.’   

Violently gang raped when she was 13 years old, and raped three times more before the age of 18, Madeleine has experienced more trauma in her life than most ever will. Living in a state of shock and self-loathing, it took her years of struggle to confront the buried memories of that first attack and begin to undo the damage it wrought, as men continued to take advantage of her fragility in the worst possible way.

Madeleine, who gives inspirational talks worldwide, discusses how forgiveness, living the best life she could, and sharing her story through her book, her podcast, her talks and her appearances on radio and TV, gave her back her life and inspired her to become an advocate for others.
