‘You have to live with your violated body, you have to live with the memory of what was done to you’

It’s easy to believe that women are raped only in isolated parts of the city, in moving cars, by men they don’t know. That it only happens once darkness falls. It’s easy to read the news and pick holes in the victim’s story, consider the things that you would not have done were you in her place and distance yourself. It’s easy to believe that rape only happens to other people.
