Journey Through Darkness is a short documentary film by Women without Borders (WwB), featuring the powerful stories of three women who have devoted their lives to preventing violent extremism. These women include: an ex-member of an Islamist organisation in the UK, Hadiya Masieh; a pioneer against violent extremism in Northern Ireland, Anne Carr; and a young woman affected by violent extremism in Madrid, Beatriz Abril Alegre. The three women are part of WwB’s growing network of Sisters Against Violent Extremism (SAVE network) and act as ambassadors for change by offering compelling, alternative narratives to extremism.
