Abigail Breslin Opens Up About Her Own Experience With Sexual Assault
This month is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and many celebs are lending their hand to promote conversation around the issue, including Abigail Breslin.
The 20-year-old Dirty Dancing actress shared the following photo to Instagram outlining the deifnition of 'consent': “You are not obligated to have sex with someone that you’re in a relationship with. Dating is not consent. Marriage is not consent.”
Alongside the image, Abigail wrote in the caption, "I knew my assailant. #SexualAssaultAwarenessMonth #breakthesilence.”
While she doesn't name names, Abigail's admission of assault by a known assailant attempts to build a public dialogue around consent.
Thank you for being brave <3
