On this Memorial Day, I bring you a bit of patriotic Vagina News – an organization paying tribute to rape survivors on the national mall.
On this holiday when we remember those who have given their lives for their country, let’s also remember those who volunteered to do so, only to be attacked not by a foreign enemy, but by their own countrymen. It is because of their heroism that we have the opportunity to right these ongoing wrongs. It makes today more complicated, and rightly so.
Thank you, servicewomen and men, for your bravery and sacrifice, in every kind of battle.
