Forced is a performance composed of personal testimonies of rape and sexual violence in Egypt.

BuSSy held this performance in collaboration with Nazra for Feminist Studies as part of the "It Happens" campaign, which combats rape. The performance also took place within the framework of the “16 Days of Activism Campaign”.

Testimonies were collected from BuSSy’s story archive, and from the archive of El Nadim Center for Management & Rehabilitation of Victims of Violence with permission. All personal details have been edited to protect the identity of survivors.
