April is Sexual Assault Awareness month. For the whole month of April, RedMyLips.org is encouraging men and women to wear red lipstick to take a stand against rape culture and sexual violence. According to the Red My Lips website,
Red My Lips is an international nonprofit organization designed to raise visibility and awareness about the realities and prevalence of sexual violence, while combating rape myths and victim-blaming. We run an annual global awareness and action campaign where our fierce and fearless supporters rock red lipstick all throughout the month of April (Sexual Assault Awareness Month) to demonstrate solidarity and support for survivors and start important conversations with people in their lives.
This is an important topic for me. Because of an incident I had experienced, in college and law school, I committed myself to speaking out against rape culture and sexual violence. I wrote papers, assisted with cases, and studied it. I love what this organization is doing and believe that awareness and knowledge are a great way to ending sexual violence and rape culture. Because I believe in the organization and their mission, I am donating 10% of my red Lipstick sales to RedMyLips.
I would like to encourage everyone to wear red lips (any brand of lipstick, of course) for the month of April. It’s a small thing, but means so much.
