IN THE AFTERMATH: REFLECTIONS BY SURVIVORS OF GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE
This week, Tasteful Rude publishes a pair of reflections that explore the aftermath of gender-based violence.

We also publish these essays in response to the continued glorification of “cancelled celebrities,” in particular men reported for persistent engagement in gender-based violence and harm.
