Ione Wells – TED Talk

IONE Wells (EL 2007-2013) has given a powerful TED talk, discussing her experience of assault and the social media campaign which followed.

“We need a more considered approach to using social media for social justice,” says writer and activist.

After she was the victim of an assault in London, Wells published a letter to her attacker in a student newspaper that went viral and sparked the #NotGuilty campaign against sexual violence and victim-blaming. In this moving talk, she describes how sharing her personal story gave hope to others and delivers a powerful message against the culture of online shaming. Click here.
