As I stated in a previous post, most women have experienced sexism and inappropriate sexual behavior. I am no exception. Reflecting back on one such situation in my past reminded me of how we, as individuals and as a system, can take steps to prevent the slide from disrespect to sexual violence.
As I watch and read recent news reports, I find myself angered and saddened by the dialogue around sexual violence towards women. I see recent events leading to more polarization and increasing the permissive culture that distracts us from where the real change can and needs to occur.
