Survivors of rape, sexual assault and sexual violence are speaking around the world, instigating a social movement. However, their speech enters mainstream media and legal institutions that edit, interpret, and spin their stories. States and institutions in general are responding in ways that sideline the movement toward agendas that have little to do with addressing the epidemic of sexual violence. What can we learn from this moment and how can we make resistance more effective?
