We're still talking about sexual assault because it's still happening. And although the #MeToo movement has motivated us to have important conversations about sexual violence and trauma, we hardly ever talk about the aftermath of sexual assault. How do survivors navigate their lives post-trauma? What helps them "heal" and "move on"? These questions are central to Jen Sookfong Lee and Stacey May Fowles' new anthology—Whatever Gets You Through: Twelve Survivors On Life After Sexual Assault—as well as to this week's episode. Tune in to hear writers and survivors Stacey and Jen chat with Mica about what has helped them recover (everything from online make-up tutorials to baseball!), why the language we use to describe sexual assault can be misleading, and what we can all do to make the world a kinder space for survivors.
