Welcome to the NO! The Rape Documentary website!
Aishah Shahidah Simmons, an incest and rape survivor, has been on the U.S. national and international road raising awareness about rape, sexual assault, and other forms of sexual and gender-based violence, and the critical non-negotiable need to end all of it almost since the conception of her idea and vision in 1994 that evolved into NO! The Rape Documentary.
Little did Aishah know that her vision and her commitment would be tested over and over and over again on multiple physical and metaphysical levels. She also didn't know that it would take a full thirteen years before her full vision of a completed feature length documentary film and its' supplemental materials would WOmanifest.
This-Portuguese, French, and Spanish subtitled, feature-length, internationally acclaimed, award-winning documentary, its' two-hour supplemental educational video, and the accompanying 100-page study guide explore the international realities of heterosexual rape, sexual assault and other forms of violence committed against women through the first person testimonies, scholarship, spirituality, activism, and cultural work of African-Americans. They are being used globally in grassroots and also mainstream movements to end rape, sexual assault, and other forms of violence against women.
We invite you to join Aishah in her work to end rape, child sexual abuse, sexual assault and other forms of sexual and gender-based violence globally.
