I talk about it because I like to talk, not play the victim, because I know there are now many women going through exactly what I’ve been through” .

I called the police and he locked me in the house, went downstairs, and he answered [os agentes na porta] “It’s a fight between husband and wife, everything is fine, everything is calm, she is resting there,” he said. Nobody wanted to hear me, nobody wanted to know if I was alive, if I was dead, nobody wanted to investigate, nobody came.

He took me to the hospital, and I had to lie in the hospital, because he said that if I told the truth I would suffer the consequences. From there I said “I want to go to my mother’s house”. I have been abandoned [por ele] With black eyes, my face completely disfigured, a 6-month-old baby on my arms, and there’s still love, even with all I’ve been through, So this abandonment, aggression, holding it all together, said ‘That’s it, I have to go through during this” [sendo que] He was already with another pregnant woman. That was the beginning of my life, with my daughter, my family and my career.”
Pokah made it clear that on paper she was not married to her ex-partner, but that the two had work contracts. When she came to him to sign “Chapter” and get her belongings back, he sexually assaulted her in the car, and her ex-father had seen the act doing nothing to help her.
“I was in my car, at his door to sign, he took and hid my key, abused myself, and tried to fight him, but I had no strength. So I gave in to leave and he said. Next to the car, I screamed for help, and he did nothing.”
