Rape

A third of all women and girls in ‘free’ and ‘safe’ countries such as Australia, and right across Europe, will be raped or sexually assaulted.

As I watch my 2-year old daughter sleep peacefully, those numbers feel deeply intolerable, disgusting, and make me angrier than words can convey.

This Valentine’s Day, let’s all take a moment to reflect on what it is about our ideas of manhood that allow this to happen. That we aren’t all sickened by this to the pits of our stomach is sad beyond belief.

Change starts with men getting angrier about this appalling abuse.

Share widely to agree!
