Emily Lindin’s #myWYVstory “Let’s Put An End To Slut Shaming”
Wear Your Voice Mag recently sat down with Emily Lindin, founder of The UnSlut Project to learn about her story and life’s work as an advocate for gender equality, sex positivity, and sex education.
“I decided to create The UnSlut Project in the hopes that my own diary entries from ages 11-14 could provide some perspective to girls who currently feel trapped and ashamed.”
“Since The UnSlut Project started in April 2013, it has expanded to include the stories of people of all genders, ages, backgrounds, and nationalities. These shared stories not only provide hope and solidarity to girls who are currently suffering – they demonstrate to us all just how widespread the issues of sexual bullying and “slut” shaming really are.”
“This is a collaborative space for sharing stories and creating awareness about sexual bullying, “slut” shaming, and related issues. It is up to each of us to evaluate and take responsibility for our own assumptions and interactions. Join us in spreading the word and changing our world.”
Emily’s Book Unslut is available for pre-order now, and will be released in December. Watch Emily’s full #MyWYVStory
