Hi there! I decided to make this blog as a part of my Personal Action project for my Rape and Sexual course at SUNY New Paltz. This has become so much more than just a project however. I would really like to challenge the idea that we should all stay silent about our rapes. Rape is not inevitable but if we don't speak about our experiences how will we ever expect our society to change? I encourage everyone to share their stories here if you feel comfortable, please submit and ask questions I will answer every single question I receive. Before you share please read about some of the feelings that may arise from recounting your story. Also feel free to read about my story! Thank you all so much, together we can make a difference!

you are allowed to terminate toxic relationships

you are allowed to walk away from people who hurt you

you are allowed to be angry and selfish and unforgiving

you don’t owe anyone an explanation for taking care of yourself

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month
On average, there are 237,868 victims (age 12 or older) of rape and sexual assault each year. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), during which activists from all over the nation seek to raise awareness about sexual violence and educate individuals and communities about how to end it. This effort requires many voices – including yours! There are several ways you can get involved, and here are just a few:
The National Sexual Violence Resource Center’s campaign this year focuses on healthy sexuality. On their site you can download a social media toolkit, learn how to become an agent of social change, and plan your own prevention campaign.
Participate in #TweetAboutIt Tuesdays or #30DaysofSAAM throughout April with the NSVRC.
Talk to your friends about sex, healthy relationships, and consent.
Educate yourself about sexual abuse and sexual coercion.
Learn more about how men can get involved via Men Can Stop Rape or Men Stopping Violence.
If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual assault and you need someone to talk to, contact loveisrespect 24/7 at 1-866-331-9474 or chat online at loveisrespect.org. It’s free, anonymous, and confidential.

[Photoset of Sailor Moon winking. Texts read: Made a phone call, Ordered the food you really wanted,  Asked a question in class, Cooked yourself a good meal, Got out of bed today, Calmed yourself down from a panic attack, Didn’t overwork yourself, Practiced self-care.]

Sometimes we get so focused on the big things that it’s easy to forget our small accomplishments, so I made the Sailor Moon Award! Celebrate the little accomplishments you make throughout the day, you deserve it!

Feel free to print these out and use them if you want, or make your own!
