Declaration of Sentiments Addition

It is true that women have come a long way to gain equality in our society. We now have more than ever women who are speaking out on the issue to raise awareness and fight for change. Women activists have also been surfacing amongst the hollywood stars such as Emma Watson which positively draws more attention toward the fight for equality for women.
One issue I believe we need to work on diminishing is how we handle sexual harassment and rape. Most of the time when society speaks out against rape it’s advising women not to go out late at night alone or to be cautious of the areas they visit. We should be telling men not to attack women in the first place, not just giving advice on how a women can decrease her chances of being assaulted.
