Were you raped into a better feminist?
ARIA SALVATRICE’s diary, 2016-2017
This is about becoming yourself as armed thugs rob you of your dignity.
This is about waiting for a war that was never about you to end.
This is about the violence and solitude in the refugee camps.
This is a defense of those who dare not to be violent.
Those diary entries were originally published in 2016 and 2017 on a blog that is no longer publicly available. Those ten entries were selected for their complementarity of thematic focus. They were significantly edited to be more concise and to provide the required context. They can be read in any order. They must be read closely.
I hope my diaries will reach those who should read them.

Names were omitted. It is the only concession to privacy I will make.
