Meri Kahani: My Story, written by Mehreen Poonja and Umbereen Inayet, is an innovative play addressing the challenges faced by South Asian survivors of abuse in a North American context. Using theatre, dance and music as a tool for change, each kahani, or story, is told through the varied perspectives of South Asian survivors of abuse and looks at issues of domestic violence, incest, gender, trauma and sexual assault to capture the diversity of experiences among South Asian women. Meri Kahani: My Story has served to educate, empower and inspire audiences in resisting ongoing violence and overcoming barriers that women face.
