I was about sixteen the first time one of my friends told me that she had been raped. Since then I’ve gone through hundreds of hours of training, become a crisis counselor, educated myself on rape and society, and written articles, stories, and a novel about the subject. None of it changes the feelings of anger and helplessness, the same things I felt that night all those years ago.
I’m posting these articles and links in the hope that they’ll make some small difference. If you know of other resources I should add, please let me know.
Columns – From 2004 to 2005, I wrote for the State News, the college newspaper at Michigan State University.
Blog posts – These days, I’ve switched from newspaper to blogging. Here are some of the rape-related posts I’ve written over the past few years. You can also use the rape tag to read recent rape-related posts.
