We are here, and we will not be silenced; we will not be scared off our streets and political action; we will not retreat to whatever sheltered bubbles any classist illusions of social standing or gender roles afford us; we will not be confined to what you tell us are our appropriate places and spaces; we will not be intimidated, we will not be shamed.

A couple of weeks ago, I have been through the trying experience of being subjected to sexual assault while participating in a demonstration to end sexual harassment.

I am still healing, but I am not broken, I will be stronger.
