"As a young girl, I was sexually precocious with poor boundaries. I hung around with strange older men because I wanted their attention, and thusly, their love. As a young adult, I drank and used drugs to the point of blackout, went strange places with strange people, walked alone late at night without my wits about me. Still, the only times I was raped were when the man I was with was a rapist." ---Emily of XO Jane, on her Project Unbreakable submission

"This 'slutty' outfit is almost identical to the one I wore when my neighbour sexually assaulted me. I was five." God, this is so, so horrible.

We teach girls shame. ‘Close your legs!’ ‘Cover yourself!’ We make them feel as though by being born female, they are already guilty of something. And so, girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire. They grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow up to be women who cannot say what they truly think… they grow up to be women who have turned pretense into an artform." — Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, TedxEuston #quotes #feminism

"We push women to study, to get a great job then at some point they have to choose between a family or a career. Women shouldnt have to choose" Licia Ronzulli
