Flash forward 50 years later and women are now able to come forward when they have been assaulted and for the most part, have their abusers addressed. Unfortunately, so many of our mothers and grandmothers didn't have that chance to share their stories. And for some, this is now their time to be heard.
People complain why did they wait so long, when the question should really be why did we wait so long to care? No matter when the pain happened, it never goes away. I hate that people say "you should have kept it to yourself", which is saying the victims should continue to be silent.
Can you imagine telling someone who lost their child to murder and share their stories later, why are you still talking about it? Why are you now choosing to say something about it?
