April is halfway done, and I’m still looking for more people to share their stories for Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
As I stated in the post earlier this month about the statistics: 80% of women with a disability will have a sexual assault experience in their lifetime.
As a participant in mainstream feminism, I have never come across a dialogue about disability and sexual assault, and I want to put it out in front of people to talk about and to understand better what we experience every day.
By sharing our stories we are asking people to pay attention.
By sharing our stories we are showing other people who have experienced what we have, that they are not alone.
By sharing our stories, we no longer need to feel the shame of silence.
That you have a disability.
That you identify yourself as a survivor of a sexual assault or domestic violence situation.
Please give me a title for your piece to go after the series title “Sexual Assault & Disability”
Please tell me if you want to be credited with your real name, or a pseudonym (and consider picking a rather unusual pseudo).
Submit through the contact form on the site!
Thank you for considering sharing your story with Feminist Sonar.
