Persephone's Daughters is a survivor-founded & majority survivor-run literary and arts journal for abuse survivors of all gender identities. The journal is named for Persephone, the Greek goddess of vegetation and the queen of the Underworld, who was abducted by Hades, the King of the Underworld, and separated from her family. This abduction is often referred to as the Rape of Persephone. Our previous contributors have included but are not limited to survivors of domestic and sexual violence, abusive international marriages, child abuse, incest, human trafficking, child sexual exploitation, and harassment. We seek to uplift the voices of those pursuing peace after trauma, and to provide community and calm through healing art and storytelling. We strive to unburden the grief and magnify the resilience of survivors in hopes that their wisdom will shape a world free from violence. Thank you for being here.
