I remember thinking "what the fuck is going on here? What's wrong with him?" This morning, I listened to Lucy DeCoutere on The Current sharing her remarkably similar experience and calling for women to not be afraid to tell their own stories. After much thought, I decided to answer her call.

We don't know if the accusations against Ghomeshi are true, some say. And yes, I was not there myself.

If it all happened to me again I would only call 911 knowing that I'm sacrificing myself for the the potential of a safer society.
