Tonight Finlandia University welcomes Emily Linden, the founder of the Unslut Project. She will present at the Finnish American Heritage Center on Tuesday, November, 14 at 7 p.m.
Linden’s story began with her personal accounts of being “slut-shamed” in middle school. Upon hearing tragic stories of young women who committed suicide to escape bullying, Linden was moved to share her personal experiences of bullying to bring light to the heart-wrenching consequences of such behavior. She created a blog where she published diary entries about her bullying experiences which evolved into the Unslut project. Today, it is a network for support, awareness, and social change. Join Linden as she speaks about her powerfully positive project.Emily Linden, It's On Us, The Unslut Project
