Bogged post: A Letter to My Sons About Stopping Rape by Magda Pecsenye

A beautiful letter that we all need to read and share with our sons. It is not too late to end the culture of rape. As women, as men, as fathers, as mothers, as aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas, as people…we can all take part in creating a rape free world. I am encouraged when I come across efforts like these. In a world where, currently, 97% or rapists will never go to jails, 54% of rapes are unreported, 73% of sexual assaults are perpetrated by a non-stranger, 38% of rapists are a friend or acquaintance,
28% of rape cases are by an intimate partner, 7% are carried out by a relative…4 in 10 take place at the victim’s home, 2 in 10 take place at the home of a friend, neighbor, or relative….that says a lot about how much we can all be active. 

 

This is one letter imma read and write to my son
