My message: Be the president your daughter would be proud of

Dear future president,

Please don’t let me continue to live in a world where rapists walk free and victims are silenced. Please don’t perpetuate rape culture or tell me that a man’s future shouldn’t be destroyed over “20 minutes of action.” Be a voice for the countless women who are too afraid to stand up. Show them that there’s someone fighting for them, no matter how hard the battle is. Be the president you would want for your daughter and your granddaughter—for every little girl out there who shouldn’t have to grow up in a world that tells them to sit down and shut up.

Sincerely,

Becca Castillo
