Today, I attended Bioneers. I listened to an Indian woman, Mallika Dutt speak about her domestic violence against women campaign called "Ring the Bell."
Her campaign was very savvy and smart but I wasn't touched by anything in particular and instead felt numbed by the statistics. I guess I wish I could have heard more from the victims who have been affected. But that is rare. To hear victims speak out when the violence itself is going on behind closed doors.
I went home feeling like I did it in me to speak out about my rape. I could create a performance about it. Or do something. Anything!
