“When I was six, I was raped by my older cousin, and I was told they wouldn’t believe me over him. I was silenced. When I was eighteen, a man crawled into my bed and touched me, and when I reported what happened to the police they questioned him too. I was arrested for a false police report. My boyfriend at the time continually raped me for seven years for any and every little thing I did wrong. I finally escaped him, and now I’m in therapy and struggling to be intimate with my husband.”
