We believe women and girls were made to be valued, not victimized, and even though we might not know you yet, we think you believe that too. Current global statistics suggest that 1 in 3 women and girls endure physical and/or sexual violence. This cruel reality is startling and unacceptable, but until the world changes, we must take matters into our own hands. We must refuse to accept that unwanted advances are normal male behavior or somehow our fault. We must learn to defend ourselves.
