TRIGGER WARNING: The content of this piece contains descriptions of sexual and physical assault. Some readers may find it upsetting. I have chosen to publish this work because it is – sadly – an all too common story for girls, and one that is often swept under the rug. However, I believe that Girl Museum, as a museum dedicated to girls and girlhood, has a duty to share all stories, even painful ones. By hiding painful realities, we condemn other girls to live them, too. Perhaps by sharing them, we can end cycles of violence.
