Quote of the Week – All the Rebel Women by Kira Cochrane

All the Rebel Women: The rise of the fourth wave of feminism (Guardian Shorts) - Kira CochraneTo show the absurdity of telling women to avoid rape, rather than telling perpetrators to stop, Harding set up a Tumblr called Don’t Get Raped. On this, she posted links to news reports of rape, with titles flagging up all the situations which would have to be avoided, in order to be safe. Don’t go to college. Don’t go to the airport. Don’t be in or around your own home. Don’t take a walk in broad daylight. Don’t have a neighbour who’s bored and into violent porn.
