Thank You, Deeply

Dear Women & Girls Community,

We are excited to share our plans for the future of women and girls’ coverage at News Deeply.

In January 2018, our Women & Girls page will close as we launch the first of a new set of dedicated platforms that will allow us to dive deeper into the biggest issues affecting women and girls in the developing world.

This first platform – Women’s Advancement Deeply – will cover the pursuit of economic equality for women, from securing gender-equal access to financial services, to fighting for property rights and closing the pay gap.

We’ll also be working to launch other dedicated platforms in this space, and we are currently exploring themes of maternal, sexual and reproductive health, as well as gender-based violence. If these topics are of interest to you, please let us know here – we would love your input as we shape new initiatives.

Our trove of existing Women & Girls coverage will remain available through an archived version of the site, allowing you to explore and reference our published articles dating back to May 2016

Thank you for being part of the Women & Girls community. We look forward to having you join us in our new endeavors in this space.

The Hidden Crime

Video: Survivors Heal Through Art as Russia Turns its Back on Domestic Abuse

Abused first by her father, and then by her husband, Nina tells News Deeply how she found solace in art therapy, as part of our in-depth series on domestic violence worldwide.

Written by Tatyana Chistikova, Irina Sedunova, Taisiya Koroleva Published on Read time Approx. 0 minutes

Russia has removed domestic violence from its criminal code, despite the large number of women who are abused by their partners in the country. Very few Russian survivors of domestic violence are able to speak out about their ordeal, but Nina has shared with News Deeply her devastating story, which began when she was just a child. She is currently getting help at the St. Petersburg Crisis Center for Women, which uses art therapy as a way to heal. A film by Tatyana Chistikova, Irina Sedunova and Taisiya Koroleva.
