Recently, George Stroumboulopoulos addressed the ongoing Ghomeshi scandal during his CBC Radio 2 show. “My position today is what my position has been my entire life. There is no grey area when it comes to violence, and there is no grey area when it comes to sexual consent. And further to that, I hope we’ve all learned the value of creating a safer space for victims, so they don’t have to hide or fear backlash.”
We at Whisper could not agree with this more, this is exactly our mission and hope. His willingness to speak out is bringing national attention to the issue of fear and the need for safety.
