Rape: Do you know what time it is?

Every 107 seconds another american is sexually assaulted.

Do you know what time it is?

These women’s voices and this poem is more important than ever.

When the media addresses the issue of rape in article after article showing empathy for a man like Bill Cosby (accused of drugging and raping over 30 women) and praising another man for refusing to “kick him when he’s down,” how little our society values the lives and voices of women is clear.

So let me be clear:
The numbers

1 in 5 women are raped on college campuses

1 in 3 women are raped in the in the armed forces

1 in 5 women are raped in our daily lives

So, what number are you?

Please take a moment to show your support for these voices and the voices of all of the survivors of rape, share this video.
