"A lot of people don't realise they've been assaulted half the times and they don't know how to approach it," Kaur said. "Also, many men don't realise how prevalent rape culture is at all."


"Find solidarity. Find friends who believe you. Talk talk talk," Kaur said. "Your experience of silence, if spoken about, could give another person the courage to go out and report their trauma. Solidarity and acceptance is a huge tool. Break apathy. Don’t just accept it."
