26 Women Holding Signs Quoting People Who Sexually Assaulted Them (IMAGES)

Last week, we wrote an article that shows photos of 21 men holding signs quoting the people who sexually assaulted them. This week’s article shows women holding signs that quote the people who violated them. From last week’s article:

“Grace Brown began Project Unbreakable with people she knew who had been sexually assaulted. The project quickly escalated and now includes more than 2,000 survivors from all over the country holding signs with the quotes from their attackers written on them. Her mission is “healing through art.”

“Brown, 21, is a photographer and public speaker from Massachusetts. Her first subject was a friend who confided in her. The story made her realize how common sexual assault is and she awoke the next day with the idea for Project Unbreakable.”

One in three women have been or will be sexually assaulted at some time in their lifetime.

UPDATE 11/19/13 We can not make gender assumptions. Some of the courageous people in these photos may be transgender, and therefore, I can not assume that they are male or female.
