This is a very powerful article. Something to think about as we look around at our core of society, ethics and others. This is really applicable to anyone, anytime, and gives good insight into mentally (and intentionally) “walking in another’s shoes” while reflecting on our own impact on others. We all need to learn to be more conscientious, compassionate, and self aware.

Thank you for your feedback Kimberly. It is very important to demonstrate the capacity to be empathetic or “walk in someone else’s shoes,” while also looking at rape culture and sexism as the root causes of sexual violence and rape anxiety.

Absolutely, Kimberly. Conscientiousness, compassion, and self-awareness are so crucial to learning how to advocate and support others who are going through something that you have not experienced or may not fully understand. Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment!
