Brilliant piece as always, Elle. If someone doesn’t want to identify as a feminist, that’s fine, but everyone should understand how pervasive sexual violence is. Sadly, a lot of people are not able to name the thing that happened to them. To me, feminism helps people find the ability to name the problem. It certainly didn’t create the problem.
