Stop the hyper sexualization of young girls! 🛑
When I was nine years old, I was followed home from school by a man in a black car, with tinted windows. He drove slowly, following every turn I took, until I was able to run down an alley to escape. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I was twelve, I stopped going to family gatherings on one side of my family, because not one person in my extended family stood up against the vile and inappropriate comments an uncle made toward me and my developing body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I was fourteen, a man took photos of me on his flip phone on a public bus, while touching himself.
These are just a few of countless examples that stand out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stop the hypersexualization of young girls. And if you see it happening, don’t standby. Stand up. Use your voice. Help make change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
