Any girl who ever went to junior high risked being called a slut. You know what a slut is, right? It's any girl who was promiscuous, looked like she might be promiscuors, or like she might be developed sexually, or like she might someday have sex, or was just unlucky enough to be targeted by bullies.
Emily Lindin knows all about that since she was the target of "slut shaming" from age 11 to 14. But unlike most of us who just geot depressed and kept our heads down, she's doing something about it.
Lindin is the author of the new book "UnSlut: A Diary and a Memoir" and founder of The UnSlut Project, an online community where survivors of sexual bullying and slut shaming can share their stories, and where girls who are currently suffering can find support and solidarity.
Now a Harvard graduate pursuing her PhD in California, Emily started the project by blogging her own middle school diaries. "UnSlut: A Documentary Fils" is currently screening around the country, and Lindin has shared her story on TV and Radio shows including ABC with Katie Couric, CNN, THe Doctors, Al Jazeera America and others.
Join us as we talk about what it means to have a "slut" label and how we can "unslut" each other.
