It all began during a merciful South African winter. Nouns, verbs, words, sentences. Strung together into random stories about the unimaginable. About rape. About sexual violence as a tool of political and social oppression. About the intersection of rape and the state. About the suffering. And its silence. This blog will continue to explore this deeply troubling nexus - its society-and state-centered character. And the manipulation of its narrative.
This is our story. Yours and mine.
