Rape is not a tool to make a character stronger. A woman doesn’t need to be victimized in order to become a butterfly. The #littlebird  was always a Phoenix. Her prevailing strength is solely because of her. And her alone. #GameOfThrones 

5 strangers told an intoxicated teenager that they would walk her to her car. Instead they took her to another location where they filmed gang raping her. Being motionless with her eyes closed doesn't equate consent. That isn't sexual abuse. It's rape.

Yes. Im sick of the media demanding only women speak up. What about the men? Perhaps many are afraid to look at their own behavior.....

Interested in seeing the future? This is how 18-25yr voted last night. 🌻

If you don't hire a qualified interviewee because of fear that you'll be tempted to sexually harass her, perhaps you should consider speaking to a mental health expert about impulse control.

To all the people that love this film- you're watching a 19yr old get raped by a 48yr old man. The director planned her attack. I feel sick.

"Under Spanish law, the lesser offence of sexual abuse differs from rape in that it does not involve violence or intimidation." No intimidation? 5 strangers luring an intoxicated woman to an unknown location is incredibly scary & intimidating. How many women are killed each year?

When violence against women is used as a plot device to make the characters stronger then we have a problem. It is not empowering to be beaten and raped, yet so many films make it their 'pheonix' moment for women. We don't need abuse in order to be powerful. We already are.
