The injustice over a Stanford rape case has galvanized the web. So far, reportedly 5 million people have viewed a letter from the unnamed survivor to her attacker, Brock Turner, who was caught in the act of assaulting her behind a dumpster. He was sentenced to only six months in prison.
One such activist is the actress Brie Larson, notable for her onscreen depictions of survivors, including an Oscar-winning turn as a captive victim in Room.
Larson took to Twitter to share her outrage on behalf of survivors. "The most important thing you will read, told by a brave SURVIVOR," she wrote, sharing the letter, which was published on BuzzFeed. "Let's scream louder. No one deserves to be raped."

You're right - but men go through this too. 2.78 million men are survivors of sexual assault in the US alone. https://t.co/l3IpzDXQYU— Brie Larson (@brielarson) June 4, 2016
Larson shared the sentiment that many supporters are feeling — the lack of faith in the justice system. She wrote, "Every inch of this case is severely disappointing. None of this is the survivors [sic] fault. NONE. ZERO."
Shameful. His son raped a woman. Rape IS violence not "20 minutes of action". https://t.co/ldM1rmz5Z2— Brie Larson (@brielarson) June 5, 2016

Most importantly, she published a link to End Rape on Campus, an organization working to end campus sexual violence.
Larson is just one of the many voices coming out against Turner and in support of survivors everywhere, like CNN's Ashleigh Banfield's reading of almost the entire statement on air.
