One of the most troubling parts of doing work to prevent and heal sexual violence is how deeply embedded rape culture is in our society. Your heart sinks every time you hear a rape apologist speaking so boldy. When people speak the language of rape apology, they seem to forget about victims. Our intense pain and what we have gone through, just never seems to even cross their minds.  

It’s infuriating. It’s painful. It’s disappointing.

It’s also on its way out. 

The more we share our stories, the more we heal and inform society.
