Created by a crew of 19 womxn, "Why Didn't I Leave?" challenges the stigma behind that very question - one which places blame on victims of abuse, rather than holding perpetrators accountable. The short documentary explores some of the less recognizable forms of abuse and the overwhelming barriers many survivors face when trying to escape, while highlighting the local organizations working to support survivors.
