Anonymous answers from a survey created by Katy Abbott and writer and cartoonist Kaz Cooke asking women for their ‘hidden thoughts’.
The survey they created asked:
1. Do you have hidden thoughts and feelings? Tell me what they are.
2. What have you learnt to be brave about?
3. What would you like to be braver about?
4. Do you have anything further to say about hidden thoughts and/or courage?
