One Hour in Paris in the Toronto Star

The Toronto Star ran an article on speaking out against rape culture today, including an interview with Karyn L. Freedman about her new book, One Hour in Paris. 

“This also has the unfortunate consequence of making rape look like a personal problem, a random event that happened to me, for instance,” she says, “because of where I was, what I was wearing, or who I was with, instead of what it really is: an epidemic faced by women and children worldwide which is the manifestation of age-old structural inequalities which persist between men and women. By speaking out about their experiences of sexual violence, survivors can help us to see the problem of rape as a problem of social justice.” Read the article here.
