Bringing light to the very real problem of abuse; sexual,physical and emotional. The box the victim is trapped in symbolizes how the society we live in makes it hard for them to speak up and sometimes even silences them. Victims have to prove they were innocent, most times not anonymously so they are labeled and looked down by others even their family and friends by being “dirty” or broken.
Making the victim pay for their own rape kit, blaming their clothing to be too tempting or just making the victim feel guilty like they contributed to their own abuse. The box can also represent the toxic environment the victim is in and it can’t only be physical but also emotional abuse and how it can start breaking their self confidence and their mental health becomes deteriorated.
Sadly, there are too many reasons why survivors keep their sexual assault a secret. The burden of holding such a traumatic event in silence can bring a lifetime of emotional turbulence.
