We are silenced by fear. We are silenced by shame. We are silenced by guilt. By the myths and legends and stories and films and comments and images that tell us our voices are not as important, that we may be a victim but we are also at fault, that we just have to shut up and take what comes because this is the reality of life as a woman.
If there’s one thing for certain it’s that more silence is not going to change anything.
