As a little girl, I thought big bad wolves only existed in fairytales. I thought you could trust everyone. I thought sexual harassment only happened in movies.
Then I grew up.
Watching events unfold over the past few months has been both heartbreaking and inspirational. The courage these individuals display when they have to face their attacker(s), the amount of support they are receiving, and the world finally saying, “enough is enough” is incredible.
When young girls reach a certain age, society starts teaching them things like, “don’t walk alone”, “don’t wear that short skirt unless you want to be catcalled”, and “that’s just the way it is for women.” We are programmed to accept the fact that we will be sexualized every time we step out of the house.
We are finally coming together and acknowledging the issues. We are done letting things roll off our backs, and we are done looking the other way.
Our time is here, our time is now, our time has come, and your TIME IS UP.
