Some of these have been changed to remove identifying features. We also had some courageous and touching stories shared at the Open Mic.</p> <p>Each Voice that speaks out, makes other victims feel less alone, and less to blame. Each voice makes it easier for others to break the silence. Rape Culture can only exist when we look away and don't see it for what it is. Thanks to all these courageous voices for starting the process.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/community">Community</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://lucubrations.org/content/it-happened-here" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://lucubrations.org/content/it-happened-here#comments Community AVERT Violence Sharing Fri, 28 Apr 2017 11:30:29 +0000 dbanach 1127 at http://lucubrations.org Poems for AVERT against Rape Culture http://lucubrations.org/content/poems-avert-against-rape-culture <p>&nbsp;Here are Some Poems that speak the truth about Rape Culture:<br /> <br /> &nbsp;</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Lqk3n_knxMU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/dM9EB1_5sEk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/chPA5hGqTB8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/S1VZreZwsMA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/community">Community</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://lucubrations.org/content/poems-avert-against-rape-culture" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://lucubrations.org/content/poems-avert-against-rape-culture#comments Poetry Community AVER Rape Culture Sharing Thu, 27 Apr 2017 18:21:33 +0000 dbanach 1126 at http://lucubrations.org Open Mic in LLC at 8PM tonight http://lucubrations.org/content/open-mic-llc-8pm-tonight-0 <p class="rtecenter"><b style="font-size: 13.3333px;
