Silent Tears fall at the moment when we feel the most alone and the most lost. But they also symbolise a turning point to look for hope and strength.

The exhibition revealed the lived experience of women with a disability who are subjected to violence and women who acquired disability as a result of violence.

The power of the exhibition lied in the hands of the women who have shared their stories of domestic violence, forced sterilisation, psychological trauma, female genital mutilation, neglect, sexual abuse within institutions or by family members.

Award winning artist Belinda Mason worked with three emerging artists with disabilities to collaborate with the 20 women featured in the exhibition.

Silent Tears aimed to shift perceptions and raise awareness of the issue of violence against women with a disability.
