Every day thousands of people around the world suffer from various forms of domestic violence. Unfortunately, in Russia this problem is becoming more obvious every year: the number of complaints to the police is increasing, and more and more reports of terrifying murders appear in the media. Generally society understands the existence of the problem, but sees it only from one side — through publications in the media. At the same time, online media often cover exceptionally violent cases of domestic abuse, which distorts the representation of the problem and creates false stereotypes about domestic violence in society. The multimedia material "Million invisible tears" is aimed at highlighting the problem of domestic violence with the help of a special report from the "House-refuge for women and children affected by domestic violence" in Crimea. Longread aimed to show how women and children who have run away from their abusers live, and to explain to the reader that there are different types of domestic violence. The practical part is to create a unique multimedia material that covers the topic of domestic violence from a new perspective. Research methods — linguistic, content and discourse analysis of publications, study of draft laws and official documents, collection of interviews, and a trip to a shelter Where the author lived for four days with women and children who suffered from domestic violence. The result is a unique media product named "Million invisible tears", which has no analogues in Russian online media.
