I was raped by a friend when I was 15. I denied that it happened for years and then when it finally came out I asked the police not to investigate or try to prosecute because I would feel bad for him. I don’t want anyone to feel trapped the way I did. I want victims around the world to feel that it’s not their fault, and that it’s okay to talk about it, and it’s okay be happy and move foreword. My vision of revolution is that when bad things happen we can all find the silver lining and not let victimhood define us. We can still be strong, confident, and successful women.
