Recently I posted a terrific video project created by Caleb Peng called Project Unspoken – out of Emory University – which interviewed a number of young people about harassment and violence against women. Here’s Part 2 which interviews more folks asking them whether they know someone who has been the victim of sexual assault. It’s a powerful video because it shows that basically everyone knows someone impacted.
This is something that I’ve written about on this site before. Survivors are everywhere and you may even be one or know one. It’s important that we acknowledge that it’s a common problem first in order to fix it. All too often people think it’s something that happens to someone else and the key here is that it isn’t and there is no shame.
My personal favorite quote from the video: ”This doesn’t have to define the rest of your life.”
