They Put A Celebrity On Camera And Asked Her To Talk About A Rough Topic. She Only Got 2 Words Out.
She's totally speechless, and how can you blame her?
Let's talk about sexual assault and domestic violence.
It's not an easy topic to discuss. But we have to do it.
Let's talk statistics.
1 in 4 women in the United States will be a victim of domestic violence. And 1 in 14 men in the United States will be a victim of domestic violence.
1 in 6 women and 1 in 33 men in the United States will be a victim of rape or attempted rape.
That's a whole lot of people.
This talk is personal for so many people.
Fame, money, intelligence, good looks — nothing can insulate a person from being hurt, personally or through loved ones, by domestic violence or sexual assault.
We have to say no more. We need to talk about it. We need to act. You can read this for some ideas, like "Challenge attitudes and beliefs that allow the violence and blame the victim." No more.
Watch Hilary Swank (try to) talk about domestic violence and sexual assault.
Her emotions are almost tangible.
