She live-blogged her sexual assault
Back in November, Amber Amour was in Cape Town, South Africa, promoting her #StopRapeEducate campaign when she was allegedly attacked. The 27-year-old claims that she was sexually attacked by a man named Shakir after agreeing to take a shower with him.
The New York native couldn’t keep the incident a secret and felt the urge to share details on social media. She posted images of herself in realtime on Instagram, explaining what had just happened.
She chose to break free from shame.
