Silence is the Enemy

June 2, 2009, 10:49 am — admin (Uncategorized)

Great post today on Aetiology about the intersection of rape, war, and public health.

Sometimes there comes a public health issue that’s so big, so overwhelming, so heinous, that you just don’t know where to begin discussing it. Nevertheless, the conversation should, and must, happen just the same. Silence may be easier, but speaking out is the only way to demystify the taboos and bring attention to what’s going on for those who can’t bring attention to it themselves. And maybe, just maybe, bring about some change.

This month a coalition of blogs is donating all their income to Doctors Without Borders.  We don’t make any income from this blog, but please consider making a donation.
