Inspired by her experiences with sexual bullying at a young age, Emily Lindin created The UnSlut Project to combat slut-shaming and gender-based bullying in schools, communities and beyond. The project raised almost $20,000 through Kickstarter in 2013 to fund Slut: A Documentary Film which will tell the stories of young girls who committed suicide because of sexual bullying. Linden also published her diary from ages 11-14, providing a first-person account of how sexual harassment affected her early life.
Through an online community, the film (slated for release in 2015) and Lindin’s activism, The UnSlut Project’s goal is to “work toward a world where the word ‘slut’ doesn’t even make sense as an insult.” What could be better than that?
