    • Cristina,
      When talking about rape culture I like how you are very blunt about what is actually happening. To many people these days are turning their heads on the subject because “It will never happen to them”, but your statistics show that rape and assault happen more often than we choose to believe. Like you said, few people choose to speak out and when they do they are the ones being questioned about their motives and if they did anything to possibly have enticed their attacker! Thank you for putting your work out into the public.

    • Dear Cristi Ruiz, 
      I find your post,”Injustice of the Rape Culture,” very powerful. It is never the women’s fault, and the question asked the most is “what were you wearing?” Women shouldn’t walk down the street afraid, they should feel safe and secure. 
      One sentence you wrote  that stands out to me is,” Regardless of their actions no one deserves to be physically, verbally, or sexually abused.” I feel like this quote you mentioned people need to acknowledge it. Nobody deserves this, rape is something really serious that needs to be taken seriously.  
      Thank you for writing, I look forward to hearing more from you, because your writing is very inspiring and very important.
      From, Edith
