We’re now at the end of the month of June, which Sheril inspired many of us to think about violence towards women and girls. We have had a few posts on the subject this month, but I can’t help but think about all the stories that will never be voiced, all the violent men who will never be held accountable for their violence, all the girls and women whose terror and pain will never be healed.
If you would, I’d like to invite you to share in the comments to this post the first name (or a nickname) of a girl or woman who you know who has been abused. It could be the name of a friend, family member, or colleague, or a stranger you read about in the newspaper. You don’t have to sign your name. It doesn’t have to be as violent abuse as that talked about in Kristof’s posts. But let’s “speak” the names of some people whose stories should not be forgotten.
Thanks for helping remember them.
