Anna: Why I’ll be marching

(Trigger warning for discussion of sexual assault)

Hi, I’m Anna and I’m only 16 years old. I’m in high school, you know how boys that age are. I will be marching for every single girl that experienced some sort of sexual harassment in high school. 

I remember some boys always slapping my bum, always doing something I didn’t want them to. I’ve been ashamed, I felt dirty. I didn’t say anything which was the worst decision I ever made in my life. I stopped wearing skirts, tight tops, I wore baggy pants and generally started dressing like a boy. They didn’t stop. then I spoke out, I told someone, they got in trouble. 

It might not be as humiliating as some stories I read on here but it sure did damage my self esteem for many, many months.

Ladies, never stay quiet, always fight for your rights. 

“No Means No; Yes Means Yes; Wherever We Go; However We Dress.”
