About the Movie
Every child deserves to be loved, and the opportunity to lead a happy and healthy life. Unfortunately, childhood sexual abuse is rampant in our society: one in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused by the age of 18. There are approximately 40 million adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) in America alone; we all know someone who has been affected. Childhood sexual abuse often leads its survivors to feel fear, shame, and anxiety – all of which promote silence – and predators rely on that silence to remain undetected. It is vital that we engage in a conversation about CSA if we want to bring about change. Without an open and honest discussion both in our communities and across the country, education – and prevention – is not possible. Invisible Scars tells the story of Johnna Janis, who reveals the abuse she suffered as a child. Now armed with a new self-awareness, she explores the tools and resources available to help male and female survivors like her to overcome the debilitating effects of child sexual abuse.
