Darkness cannot drive out darkness – Paris, France

I am interrupting our scheduled blog post with a new one because of the attacks on Paris.

Paris, the city of lights, for as long as I can remember has been one of my favorite cities. Whether it be the sites: the Eiffel Tower, the Notre-Dame, the Sacre-Coeur, the Arc de Triomphe, Musee de Louvre; the culture, the food, or the people, I love every aspect of Paris.

Seeing an attack in any of the part of the world has always been heart wrenching, and Paris is no different, except that it is one of my favorite places. My heart goes out to all the victims, their families, and anyone else that has assisted in helping these people.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness

Because my blog is on changing sexual violence, I have chosen an article to share from France. This year, France has created campaign that will hopefully bring an end to sexual violence on public transportation.

Not only in France, but all across the world, women face inappropriate comments, groping and sexual violence on Public transportation. The campaign has created posters showing just how things can get out of hand. It will educate those that are unfamiliar with the epidemic of sexual violence, and create awareness to allow for bystander intervention.
