Abigail Breslin Just Bravely Shared About Her Sexual Assault Experience

April is Sexual Assault Awareness month and Abigail Breslin is bravely sharing about her experience.

The 20-year-old Dirty Dancing actress took to her Instagram to make a point that assault isn’t always something done by stranger.

In fact, an attacker may be someone you know, like in Abigail‘s case.

“You are not obligated to have sex with someone that you’re in a relationship with. Dating is not consent. Marriage is not consent,” a powerful poem read, that Abigail shared on her account.

In the caption she added, “i knew my assailant. #SexualAssaultAwarenessMonth #breakthesilence”

We applaud Abigail‘s bravery in sharing about her experience. Hopefully she will be able to help others in a similar situation.
