When Women Refuse

About This Project

When Women Refuse
After the horrific tragedy of the shootings at UCSB on May 23, 2014, the Internet responded with the hashtag #YesAllWomen, to start a conversation around the fact that while not all men commit acts of violence, all women are afraid, and rightfully so, of gender-based violence.

Many people participating in these conversations seemed to point to the UCSB shootings as an isolated incident.  But the reality for many is that women denying sexual advances to both men they know and don’t know is often fraught with violent results.  Writer Kate Harding started posting links on her Facebook page of news articles of these incidents, to show that they are, unfortunately, not isolated.  Her work inspired this tumblr, an ongoing record of the violence women face when we refuse.
