I went to the bathroom in a building on my campus and saw this on the back of the stall door. While I’m deeply upset that a young woman went through such a horrible ordeal, I’m also very touched that so many other girls wanted to help her and offered advice as well as ways to seek help. We are women hear us roar.
WOMEN HELPING OTHER WOMEN
WOMEN BEING GOOD TO OTHER WOMEN
THIS SHIT IS REVOLUTIONARY.
If you haven’t read Speak, this photo is why this book is so, so important.
This is also why I will always, always advocate for the right to be anonymous on the Internet, because sometimes that’s the only way for those without power to tell the stories they need to tell and find support from others in the same position.
This. Over and over and over and over again. THIS is what life is about. Supporting other women in their lives, regardless of circumstance.
