The danger of Silence
“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends”- Martin Luther King Jr.
Every day, all around us, we see the consequences of silence manifest themselves in the form of discrimination, violence, genocide and war. Yesterday, I watched a TEDx talk on “the danger of silence” by Clint Smith and I realized how l have short changed me and everyone around me. Often times, I find myself being a bystander on issues and not stepping in to say my opinion mainly because of fear but silence one day, silence the next … and we end up allowing something we didn’t want in the first place.

What do we mean when we say"RAPE CULTURE"?
When we talk about rape culture, we’re talking about cultural practices that excuse or otherwise tolerate sexual violence. We’re talking about the way that we collectively think about rape. More often than not, it’s situations in which sexual assault, rape, and general violence are ignored, trivialized, normalized, or made into jokes.
And this happens a lot.
All the time.
