Default Elizabeth Smart: Misogynist views of sex kept her from escaping

And that's how easy it is to feel like you know longer have worth, you know longer have value," Smart said. "Why would it even be worth screaming out? Why would it even make a difference if you are rescued? Your life still has no value."

I'm so glad she's been speaking out about how abstinence-only education harms girls/women.
