This is the kind of voice that needs to be elevated right now
Sexual assault is a very real and depressingly common crime that is currently at the forefront of people's minds, and will, hopefully, stay there. As icons fall and despair sets in, we need to learn to listen to those whose voices have, for two long, been wilfully ignored, or deliberately silenced.
Eva Gutowski is a YouTuber, a successful business woman, author and more. She is also a victim of sexual assault, a difficult truth that she has long been open about:
What Eva said recently about rape and sexual assault needs to be heard by everyone, particularly those who are unsure how to deal with some of their favourite stars being outed as rapists or harassers.
Funny how all these popular actors rape allegations are out of the news in 1 day. When i was in HS, one of the most well liked boys assaulted and used me, and of course no one wanted to believe I️t, not even the police 🤔 Yes. These things happen.

I️t doesn’t matter if someone’s in 40 of the most popular movies, singing your all time favorite song or captain of your favorite football team. Once you assault someone, none of your talent means a thing to me.— Jolly Eva Gutowski (@lifeaseva) November 29, 2017
