Introducing 'By Anonymous'

It’s been a long week. Hell, it’s been a long year.

In the wake of so many stories of sexual assault, sexual harassment, recovery, addiction, eating disorders, mental health struggles, and more, it’s clear more than ever we are in desperate need of some healing.

It’s often believed that part of healing can be to tell your story. But sometimes that isn’t easy to do. While more and more women are coming forward with their personal stories, so many still face the fear of judgment, stigma, or retribution.

So that’s why we’re starting a new section for you tell your story completely anonymously. Everyone is welcome.
