What motivated you to become an “Engaged Bystander”?
In college, a woman I dated shared with me that she had been abused by a previous boyfriend. Another told me she had been coerced into having sex. Hearing about that, and hearing about what it meant to be female, especially from someone I really cared about, opened my eyes.
