Shannon Purser Speaks Out About Rape Culture on Instagram

Shannon Purser Speaks Out About Rape Culture on Instagram

Shannon Purser is not one to stay silent about the problems in our society, and she frequently uses her platforms to educate her followers about a number of issues, from American history to rape culture.

The 20-year-old Stranger Things actress posted a selfie on Instagram yesterday wearing a shirt that reads “END RAPE CULTURE” in black block letters.

“rape culture is schools telling victims not to report rape because it might reflect badly on the administration,” Shannon wrote. “It’s kids being taught that sex is some all important milestone and that somehow you’re not living if you don’t have it asap. It’s women’s testimonies being disregarded because the accusation could ‘ruin the rapist’s life.’”

“There’s no instant fix for this mindset,” she continued. “All we can do is start from the beginning. Teach your children about consent. Take people seriously when they report rape or harassment. Visit RAINN.org for more info.”

We applaud her for speaking out and for using her voice to raise awareness about such an important topic.
