So last week, I went to probably my favorite Stop the Hate session. This deeper dive was all about violence against women in particular, although we did discuss violence toward men.
According to the meeting, one in five women will be attacked in college. I don’t know about you, but that’s scary how frequent it is. And that’s not every case either; those are just the reported cases. For all of you wondering, 1 in 33 men will be attacked, so yes it does happen, but it’s far less frequent. That does not mean it’s not any more or less severe though!
So please remember to watch what you say, especially when your around others. You may mean it as a joke, but it may trigger a past memory or experience for someone else and it’s not at all funny for them. In other words, just stay awesome!
If you have any questions or if you’d like to join me, I’d love it if you came with me! Just talk to me about it anytime.
