Quote of the Day.

“The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.” – Ayn Rand

The Top Story.

Sexual assault won’t be solved by making survivors do all the work. (Elle)

#metoo #itsnotokay #yesallwomen We keep drawing attention to a serious problem, and then, it fades.  We still talk about “the number of women who were raped, instead of the number of men who raped women.”  It’s enough to make a woman super cynical.

    WaPo had a piece about the woman who started Me Too 10 years ago, and she noted that while this hashtag visibility is good, it won’t make a difference unless we do the work afterwards and on a continuing basis as she has been doing in communities of marginalized populations.

    The other thing that I think is very important, scary, but important, is for those women who are willing – start naming names. My rapist has a Wikipedia page and is known in the DMV area in the sports industry. I called him out by name and posted a link to his Wikipedia page on my Facebook page yesterday. I realize that I have certain privileges that allow me to do this without fear for my live or well-being, but it was a bit nerve-wracking regardless. I am really glad I did it, however. I realize that not every woman can do this without risking her safety, livelihood, etc., and I would never push anyone to do it. I do hope though that where a woman can without endangering herself further, she will.

      I do want to add that I agree that survivors should not have to do the work. 100% I would never ever push a survivor to do it. I will commit myself, and ONLY myself, to doing work because I can do it, stay safe, keep my job, etc. I will work to make perpetrators and men in general do work too.

      I saw that. It was a great article.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
