In the wake of the sexual assault allegations against CBC radio host Jian Ghomeshi, and the public outcry about why the women accusing him didn’t go to police or make their names public, Montgomery wanted to show just how many women keep silent when assaulted. So she tweeted under the hashtag #BeenRapedNeverReported about her own sexual abuse as a child and her rape while working as a flight attendant. Other women – and men – followed suit, until the hashtag appeared millions of times around the globe. Sue speak on Sexual Assault, Childhood Sexual Abuse and Socioeconomic Recovery. NSB-Divider
