9. Amani There's No Place Like Home by Future Women

    • Relationships

Amani was pregnant with her first baby, in 2015, when a cousin called her. Her cousin was panicking and through a jumble of mixed up sentences, told Amani to go to the hospital.

It was there that Amani learned her father had murdered her mother, Salwa. He had killed his wife of 28 years in a violent attack.

Both Amani and her sister Nour, have joined us for this episode of There’s No Place Like Home. Today we ask ‘what’s next’ for survivors of partner violence - and also the loved ones who are left behind.

Amani is a remarkable woman. Not only has she been forced to comprehend her grief in a very public way, but she has been able to do so while creating some truly beautiful art.

In this episode and through her acclaimed creative work, Amani gives us the chance to go inside her world - inside her mother’s world - and better understand the complex realities of domestic and family violence.
