Article Information

Background I gave a presentation to the Royal Military College in Kingston in October 2014 where I was disrespected, harassed and generally mistreated by officer cadets.
Reason My experience at RMC came to light as multiple women come forward in an attempt at a class action lawsuit against the RCMP for harassment.
Comment I always love to see journalists linking stories of sexual violence to similar stories. It's great to see people connecting the dots and refusing to treat each incident in isolation.
Outcome I got lots of supportive messages from complete strangers as a result of this article, which is certainly comforting in light of everything.
