#MeToo

This is a story about rape. 

This is a story about the 1 in 4 women and the 1 in 6 men who get sexually assaulted in their life.  This is the story about untested rape kits and testimonies that no one believes. This is the story about the women that are imprisoned for being raped and the 97% of rapists that are never incarcerated.

This is a story about rape. 

But more importantly, this is a story about survivors.

 

Thousands of survivors have come out this week with the #MeToo. 

Every #MeToo is a story of injustice. Every #MeToo is strength. Every #MeToo is a reason to change the rape culture society we live in.

 

But what is rape culture? 

Rape culture is everything from rape jokes to Donald Trump being the president of the United States. It's victim blaming, slut shaming, revenge-porn and questions like "What was she wearing?". It's teaching our girls to not get raped instead of teaching our boys not to rape.

It's omnipresent and it's much more powerful than you might dare to think. 

 

Rape culture is what makes my heart race and my fingers tremble of fear to post this, 4 years later.

So here we go, #MeToo.
