When every woman says #metoo, we have a  problem. There is no big or small, harrassment is harrassment. Please do not  be afraid to speak up.  Please do not suffer in silence. It’s not your fault. Take help if you need. Today you will find a lot more help than ever. Speak up, the magnitude of the problem needs to be addressed . 

As Artists, we have the privilege of being able to express through our art. And so we did. Yes these are only a handful of experiences that we went through, putting them all forward would need a few Hours or maybe more. But this is a small part of our story”
