We obsess and rally against bullying but sit quiet about sexual assault- why? Isn’t one part of the other? The silence is as bad as any drug that kills. We obsess and rally behind over breast cancer research unquestioningly yet continue to not fight hard enough to reduce violence against women. It hurts us all, when men and women sit idle. We spend billions futally combating street drugs that harm but do little to stop rape. Even one assault is too many! Why can’t we do something about this? Are we too afraid to speak out?
