At least 1 out of 5 women and girls will be raped/sexually assaulted at some point in her life. When survivors of sexual violence share their stories they are exposing the truth that rape is an international epidemic. Society encourages rapists’ behavior by slut-shaming survivors and perpetuating the myth that girls are objects designed for men’s personal consumption. Together we can give each other the strength to speak out and expose the patriarchy that tries to silence us. I will not be quiet, will you?
