Antoinette- You have written wise words that I hope will be helpful to many, men and women included. While I am sorry beyond words that rape seems inevitable to so many, it is my hope that we can change this. Together we can empower women to come together and change attitudes, behaviors, and laws. You are one of many who is standing strong. Have you seen our topic page on Gender Based Violence? http://worldpulse.com/hub/topic/gender-based-violence

Here you can read other women's stories, join campaigns, and post and read various resources. I have an idea here- you could, in fact, re-post this post as a resource under the sub-topic of 'information sharing' http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/exchange/submit

Thank you for making a difference and for lending your voice!
