Over the past few weeks I have noticed a spike in news about rapes around the world, in particular gang rapes.
I know rape is not a new thing. And I know that it has been, and is, prevalent with and without stories in the media.
Rape has been around ever since humans have been around.
My way of combatting rape is through my writing.
Here is a video of me reading an essay about rape culture and how I use poetry to fight it. I presented it at the American Comparative Literature Association conference 2013 in Toronto this past March. Academics in the crowd really appreciated it.

Lets combat rape culture!
