Know More, Say More

-trigger warnings-

A new initiative has sprung up, aiming to spread awareness of violence against women.  They emphasise the need for reproductive freedom and how people infringing on that freedom become abusers.

They have a page that shares the stories of several young women. Reading them displays the importance of reproductive rights. 

Soon after that incident, “Libby’s” boyfriend began pressuring her to have non-consensual sex, during which he refused to wear a condom. “Libby” feared that she couldn’t afford an abortion following the repeated rapes, and prayed that she hadn’t gotten pregnant.
