" I Will Not Be Silenced "

Video Published on Oct 2, 2014

After being brutally gang raped by men in East Kenya, Australian Charlotte Campbell-Stephen's horrific ordeal had just begun. When reporting the rape to the authorities, a detective told her, "No one wins rape cases in this country and that she should leave". This spurred Charlotte to instead stay and fight for justice and bring the perpetrators to account. I Will Not Be Silenced follows Charlotte through the seven-year legal battle that ensues. Through her indomitable strength and sense of outrage about sexual violence and the lack of gender equality in Kenya today, Charlotte becomes an inspiration to women, who stand by her side in her quest for justice against the odds.

As Charlotte Campbell-Stephen sat in a Kenyan police station reporting the brutal attack and gang rape she endured over an eight-hour period, the police interview room began to fill with men. It was 2006 and Campbell-Stephen, an Australian aid worker, was giving detective inspector Geoff Kinuya what she described as a “blow-by-blow”account of her ordeal.

Eight hours had been a long time to stare at the violent Nairobi gang as they mocked and raped her, but it had allowed her to memorise and describe to Kinuya her ordeal, and her attackers, in meticulous detail. Like “the man with the big leather jacket”.

“He had just this little thin silver necklace with a cross on it, with diamonds on it, and his chest was sort of hovering above me. And as he was thrusting above me it kept hitting me in the head and I grabbed hold of it at one point and twisted it and said to him: ‘You call yourself a Christian.. And he just started thrusting harder.”

Campbell-Stephen is speaking as the documentary about her ordeal and subsequent fight for justice, I Will Not Be Silenced, launches the 2015 Human Rights Arts and Film festival in Melbourne.
