Week 5 Journal
For this weeks coalition meeting, I would say that it was also very successful. As we go into the second meeting where everyone tells stories and reflects on the way that rape culture has personally affected them I am starting to see patterns. With each story told, it connects to the previous story in one way or another. I feel that we should start to identify themes of overlap in our stories that are being shared. I find it interesting because I feel that there are really no opposing viewpoints in this coalition. I don't feel like I want to die, rather I feel comfortable and I really look forward to our coalition meetings. I am assuming that this is the case because we formed a coalition with our class. I wonder whether or not we will encounter any opposing viewpoints in the future?
