Stories of those who have been silenced or unable to speak for themselves are truly ‘hidden’ histories. They are unpredictable, incomprehensible, and often contain amazing examples of how ‘ordinary’ people have overcome extraordinary circumstances by their courage, ingenuity, and fortitude.

They include the stories of:

  • ‘fallen’ women
  • children
  • the poverty stricken
  • and other ‘hidden’ categories of history

Historically children’s voices have been silenced. Criminality and destitution have been invisibly woven into society and the protection of women and children. The lines still remain somewhat blurred, even in 2020, between protective, reformative and welfare systems in our society.
