Instead of Asking Women Why They Didn’t Report, We Should Be Asking This

We, as a society, need to stop asking why women didn’t report.

Let’s take a quick detour into our history.

Why, after all these years, do boys and men still feel entitled to the bodies of girls and women?

It’s not just sexual assault.

It happens all the time. It isn’t a big deal.

Stories like this aren’t at all uncommon, which is the entire point.

We need to start asking new questions.

We’re asking all of the wrong questions.

To some people, it looks like a conspiracy rather than a pattern of behavior.

Change is never easy.

Equal is the key word.
