Audrie, Daisy & Rape Culture

Audrie & Daisy is an amazing Netflix documentary that follows, in particular, two teenagers who were sexually assaulted and raped (among other brave young women who also shared their stories). If you haven’t watched the documentary, you need to do so immediately. It’s similar to The Hunting Ground, and perhaps even more moving. Unfortunately, Audrie’s … Continue reading Audrie, Daisy & Rape Culture
