This isn’t what love should feel like

Feminists Work For Change worked with Birmingham & Solihull Women’s Aid (BSWA) and poet Nafeesa Hamid to make This isn’t what love should feel like, a domestic abuse awareness raising zine and social media campaign.

Featuring new poetry by Nafeesa Hamid and contributions from BSWA, we hope this campaign will help more people to understand the scale and impact of domestic abuse, the biggest social issue affecting women and children in society today, and to see how they can help. Ending domestic abuse is everyone’s responsibility.

If something doesn’t feel right, there are people out there who will listen and who will believe you. When you pick up the phone to speak to someone, we will believe what you say, and take it from there to support you in whatever way you need.
