Me Too...


As a survivor of sexual assault and someone who's job it is to hold space for those that have suffered from all the different forms of it...

Catcalls

Phone harassment (probably doesn't happen as much these days)

Online harassment

Text assault

Touching

Groping

Looks

Casual grabs

Molestation

Rape

Sexual Violence

ETC.

I am heavy with the weight of all the Me TOO's. Not because I'm surprised, no I knew most of the stories out there and if I didn't know I imagined. I heavey because we are 1,000,000's strong! Strong even though that strength is questioned by the people in power...

Family

Clergy

Teachers

Bosses

Co-workers

Friends

Partners

Lovers

Strangers

Presidents

ETC.

We are harassed and disbelieved. We loose jobs, family, friends, community and place...

What's the big deal

It's a compliment

No one else wants you

You were drunk

You had it coming

You asked for it

Look what you were wearing

Women like it

ETC.

We are 1,000,000's strong.

Daughters

Sisters

Mothers

Grandmothers

Friends

Aunts

Strangers

Clients

ETC.

All Women, all shapes, all colors, all sizes, gender conforming or non gender conforming. Sexual violence doesn't discriminate! It is a tool that is used to...

Destroy us

Keep us in line

Ruin our futures

And our childhoods

End our careers

Our marriages

Our sexual expression

Our lives

And still we are living

Creating

Standing

Fighting

Healing

Living

I am proud to be a woman and proud to stand with all of you.
