What She Carried

what she carried 2s

Forget, disappear:
No.  I will not pretend.  Help
me carry this weight.

Emma Sulkowicz is carrying a mattress with her everywhere she goes on the grounds of Columbia University as a protest against sexual assault on campus.  For all who have carried the same shame and fear in silence.

    At least it’s all coming to light. I wish girls on campus wouldn’t drink, but that’s probably not going to happen. I sort of hate alcohol. Nice drawing.

    Yes drinking is really a problem. Caroline and I have discussed it, and I think she gets it. Does not excuse the boys, but don’t put yourself in that position. A friend of mine from high school was raped her first week at college; she was not drunk, just naïve. She never told anyone but a few of her friends. I’m glad girls are speaking out now.
