Emma Sulkowicz’s fight to bring her to justice began by carrying around her mattress on which the dreadful incident happened. It has now reached to a level where this burden is not limited to her own, people have come up and joined the movement as Emma fights back.
Emma’s spirit to endure and persistence to fight for a fair play has gone viral across the social media and in campus itself. People are joining the battle with her, helping her in various ways, along with women all over the campus giving her a hand in carrying the weight around to the class, meals and even home after the college. This shows the ultimate attitude of people towards a fight for legitimacy for a damsel who just refused to back down.
This project has got a lot of help from many students, amongst which is a Barnard going Allie Rickard who has formed a group of activists which helps Emma in carrying the mattress around and they also protest other such sexual violences under the same hashtag.
It is a very commendable step taken by Emma, but what’s even more commendable is the fellow students who have helped her to make her voice reach the masses. We can just hope that Emma is brought to justice soon.
