I wholeheartedly agree with Lena and her team with the statement. We need to talk.
We need to reach out to every girl (or a boy) who has experienced sexual harassment. Of any sort. To be there, to support, to listen. Even if we don’t know the person, if we see something on the street. Or unknown on the internet.
We are all equally important. You are someone. I’m someone. She is someone.
