Mount Holyoke student Ali Safran said she came up with the idea for the Tumblr in October 2012, the three-year anniversary of her own assault. She said the name is a play on the phrase “strength in numbers.”
“The blog has grown to be about removing stigma and shame from sharing your story as a survivor, and is also a place for survivors to read others’ stories and be able to have their own experience validated,” the 21-year-old Safran said.
She added, “A lot of people have written to me to say how thankful they are to have a space to share; that they’d never told anyone about being assaulted before, or had told people and had gotten really hurtful or blaming reactions.”
Broken hearted? Maybe you’ll like something over here instead?
