Apparently this was the month of finding out that SocImages is quoted in awesome places! Thanks to a friend, I learned that a post is quoted in the current edition of Our Bodies, Ourselves. Um, amazing!
And I also stumbled across a generous endorsement of the site in Kate Harding’s fantastic new book Asking For It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture — and What We Can Do About It.
We love great company and this month we got it!
