Women have stayed quiet for many years now - hopefully this tide is turning.


Horrible I was sexually assaulted by a doctor relative who was supposedly doing mandatory physicals for my family for our mission before returning to Haiti, when I was 15 years old.

When I told my mom, she looked worried, but said nothing.
Message received. I don't matter. Just shut up.
Later, as an adult, I did report him to the medical board, but I doubt they did anything, as it was almost two decades later.


More stories like this are bound to come out in the coming days. A whole army of women who have survived sexual assault (and the men who love them?) will make our voices heard if not this week, this November.


Difficult but an excellent post.


Good grief!!!!
