There isn’t enough space in this magazine to discuss all of those issues. It is up to all of us to consider historical injustices, prejudices, archaic thinking and to do our best not only to teach our children how to be safe and protect themselves. However, we must also teach our children about personal responsibility for their actions toward others, that violence is wrong, and that sexual contact, without clear and unequivocal consent, is a crime. We want to get to a time when women, girls, men and boys ought to be able to live their lives, have fun, go places and interact with others without expecting to be raped.
