My biggest regret, and his, is our misunderstanding. We don’t understand each other. We love each other very much and we have a modesty that is quite linked to our culture. He still has a pride and an ego very badly placed. I told my father to go fuck himself. We haven’t spoken for 7 years.”

J’avais 19 ans, j’ai vécu un enfer pendant deux ans…Toutes les formes de violences qu’une femme peut subir, je les ai subies…Il me mettait des droites dans tous les sens… j’ai commencé à me pisser dessus. Il a continué à me rouer de coups…Avant de dormir, il m’a dit si je t’entends respirer je te tue. J’ai dormi dans ma pisse, par terre. Je priais pour ne pas mourir.”
( I was 19, I lived in hell for two years…All forms of violence that a woman can suffer, I have suffered…He was putting rights on me all over the place…I started pissing on myself. He continued to beat me up…Before sleeping, he told me if I was ‘hear breathing I’m killing you. I slept in my piss, on the floor . I prayed not to die.)
