Beaten. Pushed. Raped. Aggressed. Shamed. Silenced.
Every day millions of girls and women suffer from violence as a consequence of the toxic sense of male entitlement that our society teaches and allows.
It's not because of a lack of our modesty or because of some inherent power dynamic. It's because of choices that violent men take. Every slap, every touch, every push is a choice.
Today is the international day to end violence against women and girls.
So today have the guts, have the moral integrity to break the silence and stand with women everywhere.
Let's choose love.
