Greg Kelly, son of NYC police commissioner Raymond Kelly and co-host of “Good Day New York” on Fox 5, is being investigated for sexually assaulting a woman. Yet the headline that just came up in my news feed was this:
The media needs to call sexual assault what it is. When headlines continually conflate rape and sexual assault with ‘sex’, they contribute to a culture that ignores, and even condones, sexual violence.

An amazing young woman I met recently, Grace, has started a project called Unbreakable where she photographs survivors of sexual assault holding a quote from their attacker. May be triggering for some folks.
This is my newest photography project. I am photographing survivors of sexual abuse with a quote from their abuser during the incident. For some reason, I am unfortunately surrounded by survivors, but it is their strength that makes me stronger. That’s why this project exists. I want everyone who was a victim to realize that they are never alone.
