In the first episode of Growing up Female, we're discussing sexual assault. From the societal rules women follow in order to stay safe, to the harrowing personal account of someone who has been sexually assaulted.
You won't know her name, but you'll know her story. Her story can be reflected in your own experiences, in the experiences of people you know and love, and poeple you don't know at all.
I know more than one woman who has been harassed or assaulted, and every woman I know, and every woman that you know also knows somebody who has been harassed or assaulted.
There isn't a woman in the world who doesn't know of another woman who has been scared or hurt at the hands of somebody else.
So I think it's time we talk about the 1 in 2.
