Underaged Oversexualized

Underaged Oversexualized Synopsis

We opened up to each other to find that we all had personal stories of unwanted catcalling and grooming from our childhoods. Now that we are older, we asked ourselves and our friends to look back on these events. We wanted to share how these experiences influence how we move about in the world, and jeopardize our feelings of personal safety.
