Rape Culture.

Rape Culture

I was raped.

He took it all away.

And what could Athena do?

I do not blame her. She gave me power.

But she could not foresee what would happen next.

He was after me. A man. Again.

And what could I do?

Haunted down as a beast, I fought as hard as I could.

He used my body for his own purposes.

You might know him, must have heard of him before.

He’s a hero, after all.

And I’m a monster.


Do not give in to the rise of patriarchy.

Do not forget me.

Use me as a symbol.

This is my story, but it can be yours too.






This poem is about: 
My country
Our world
