harriettumbles ForHarriet put it beautifully: “This young woman is so remarkable. Her bravery inspires. While we continue the fight to end rape (*and also the culture that breeds it, I’d like to add), right now we can create a world where survivors know they are safe, that they are believed, and that their lives need not be consumed with shame.” #JusticeforJada #StandwithJada #IsupportJada! #Endrapeculture #Igart #stoprape #Jadacounterpose
