Survivor’s Runway – A fashions show with a difference

Eight acid attack survivors from Bangladesh are fronting a fashion show with a difference, as part of ActionAid’s campaign to tackle violence and discrimination against women and girls worldwide.

Acid attacks disproportionately affect women. Survivors’ Runway will showcase the inner strength and dignity of survivors who have had the courage to speak out against gender-based violence.

The eight models are travelling from rural areas of southern Bangladesh, where acid violence is prevalent, to raise their voices for all women and girls.

Each with an inspirational story of how they have overcome the trauma and isolation caused by their life-changing injuries, their united message is clear: together we can create change and end violence for good.
