An Open Letter to My Rapist

Mariann Martland

According to the National Institute of Justice & Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, 1 in 6 of us are victims of either attempted rape or rape in the United States alone. That’s 17.7 million American women. If you are one of these women, you are not alone. Truthteller Mariann Martland bravely shares her story, and I encourage more women to speak up and take back your power. It is yours, and only yours to give away. <3
