    Agreed! Kudos to these wonderful women who are standing up for victims of sexual violence everywhere! We need to do all we can to resist rape culture.

  2. BStu says:

    Hear, hear! Everyone with #Mooreandme has been so inspiring and I am so grateful for their speaking out.

  3. manboobz says:

    Agreed! It’s amazing how much crap they’ve had to deal with for standing up for what’s right.

  4. Echidne says:

    Yes, I am grateful for their courage, and it takes real courage. I can read enough Swedish to learn what the trolls are saying.

  5. tinfoil hattie says:

    Many thanks to all, and I was so moved by how many feminists of differing viewpoints in some areas came TOGETHER on the topic of rape & rape apology & mainstream media.

  6. Wednesday says:

    Yes, thank you to everyone (including the people on this thread whom I’ve been seeing on #MooreandMe) for giving the strength and reassurance to keep going.

    (I myself have been tweeting at @weekdayblues, and I know how easy it is to burn out, so I offer thanks all the more.)

    And Harriet. Yes, Harriet.

  8. S.H. says:

    Thanks to everyone who worked so hard, and thank you too, Jill! You were out of the gate really early shining a light on this. Your posts helped me and (countless others I’m sure) combat the misinformation that was spreading like wildfire surrounding this case.

    There is not enough gratitude in the universe for those who have organised and carried out #Mooreandme. LLAP, all!

    Sady is a blessing. And I second S.H. – thank you, Jill and everybody at Feministe for staying on top of this situation.

    Also grateful. Love and solidarity to Sady.
