I’m not a statistic

2lei-final
There is a great deal of meaning behind today’s photo. No one should have to be a statistic because of what has happened to them. The Second Life event called 2Lei is going on for a week from November 20-30 and it is in honor of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Many people think that feminism isn’t necessary in our world anymore because women stand on equal footing with men. Unfortunately, that is still not the case. Women are a marginalized population that continues to face discrimination. They face the threat of violence every day, just for walking down the street and existing. Rape survivors continue to be subjected to victim-blaming and stigma. There are movements all across the globe pressing for an end to gender-based violence. If it was not evident already, this cause is very close to my heart as a social worker and survivor. It is also close to my heart because violence against women is not talked about very much in Romania and there are few resources to support women in those situations. It is an honor for me to blog these items which will be at 2Lei. 100% of proceeds will go to charity. This event is promoting a great message and I hope you will show your support through attending some of the events or buying exclusive items.
