WATCH: Healing the wounds of Martial Law
Hilda Narciso was an educator and a church worker who was abducted on March 24, 1983. She taught students how to have open minds and be critical of what is happening around them.
As a woman, her torture case seemed to be one of the worst forms. She was repeatedly raped and molested, and penises were forced down her throat. "It's like you just want to feel you are dead," she said, as she recalled the harrowing experience.
Narciso's case was the first to come out and expose what the military had done to her. She filed a case against the military but no one was charged at the time.
She healed from the mental and emotional wounds of torture by talking about her experience and helping others who have been victims of rape. She helped to set up advocacy groups such as Gabriela and the Women Crisis Center.
Her experience also inspired her to study stress management, therapy and the Eastern Oriental method of healing. – Rappler.com
