Pioneer Photography: Survivors share their #MeToo experiences

“At first I didn’t want to jump on the #MeToo bandwagon, because I felt like I was just being a follower and all “look at me,” but when I considered it from an advocacy standpoint and not a social media gimmick, I realized how powerful my voice could be. I have taken this opportunity to talk to my son about more than just how you treat women, but how you speak to them as well. As a Mother, I have an opportunity to help influence the future of how girls at treated at school and women are treated in the workplace, and that is a powerful opportunity I wasn’t willing to waste.” – Amanda Ruiz of Dixon, a survivor of sexual assault.
