Lessons from a cult survivor- meet Claire Ashman

Boroondara Library Service

Event Date: 13 March 2019
Author / Presenters: Claire Ashman

Claire spent the first 36 years of her life in two different strict religious movements. The leader of one group was jailed for paedophilia. After challenging the leader's authority, Claire and her family were evicted from the group.

For the first time in her life Claire was free, albeit with 8 children in tow. Those early days were a struggle as Claire and her children learned to navigate their way in a new world, but she was determined that her children would not suffer as she did.
