RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization, has helped more than 1.5 million people affected by sexual violence through the National Sexual Assault Hotline and Online Hotline. And I want to support them. I've known plenty of women in my life who have suffered from sexual violence, most of those women never reported this to authorities either due to fear of facing family and their perpetrators again or their own personal feelings of shame. This kind of thinking needs to stop and organizations like RAINN help bring awareness to the public about just how many women are facing this shame and fear. We do not have to behave like animals, we can respect one another and we can help each other heal.
