"I Suggest You Shut Your Mouth"

Required reading:

The July 27 to August 9 issue of New York magazine features 35 of the 46 women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault since the late 1960's on the cover, along with an empty chair representing the 11 women who did not want to be photographed or interviewed. It is a powerful article about the culture of shame and silence that victims of sexual violence endure and the cost of speaking out against their attackers.

As noted in the article, speaking up is the only thing to do.  And more men need to speak out against sexual assault.  Stay silent no more.

More on this to follow......
