"I want to make it safe to talk about violence," said Ida when we filmed her."
"It is a powerful vision. "
"The Ida says serves as a reminder of the shortcomings. It is not safe, easy, obvious and risk-free for her to talk openly about it she's been through."
"Yet she does it, and Emma and Linda: the other two ordinary Swedish women who were subjected to violence by a man they loved."
"The last two weeks of the issue of violence against women received the fuel, and it started with a documentary about a popular artist, Josefin Nilsson. Almost two million have seen it."
"women's Shelters became nedringda, debattsidorna was full of posts about violence against women, and new statistics just happened to land from the national Crime prevention council: over thirteen thousand women last year reported to the police that they been beaten by a man who was their husband, boyfriend, partner, or ex-husband. Behind the figure, and the soaring number of people. "

"Ordinary Swedish women think of before, as it's called - to come forward. For it might provoke the man that made them bad. For that it receives to exhibit himself as a victim."
"It is understandable, and an obstacle. Stencils of women exposed to violence live on. The violence remains a secret, is shameful and incomprehensible to anyone who has problems in its own sphere but does not recognize it and not ask about it."
"Ida, Emma and Linda came out of their relationships. I asked: Why do you want to tell me this?"
"Linda replied that it is for lack of knowledge “so unbelievable”."
" People should understand how the violence can look like, which is not visible, it is sitting inside of you."
"Emma said that she would like to dispel a myth how a battered woman looks like."
"– I'm a pretty loud person is seen and is quite strong in many ways."
"I'm tired of people not dare to talk about something that is so common"
" I'm tired of people not dare to talk about something that is so common and so many people."
