My story, and why I started this petition, in DailyLife
Dec 8, 2014 — This morning Daily Life published a piece I authored: 'Why I petitioned to have Grand Theft Auto V removed from Target'.
In it, I referenced the violence and abuse I endured at the hands of men as a young woman in the sex industry. I described my long, painful process of recovery- the trauma, the flashbacks, the crippling depression and anxiety.
I shared the devastation of this violence for women like myself, compounded by media such as Grand Theft Auto that makes such violence entertainment for men.
Thank you for standing with Claire, Kat and I as well as other female survivors of violence.
