“‘Because he told me I would get in trouble.’

“Because I thought that’s just what happens when you drink too much.”

“I was in the 2nd grade. It was my first time wearing a skirt.”

Those are just a few of the responses that can be found on more than 1,000 fliers posted around Manhattan and Brooklyn on subway platforms, bathroom walls, lamp posts and more. The fliers, with the hashtag #WhyIDidntReport, asked New Yorkers to share their stories of sexual assault and why they didn’t report them.”

“New data show younger couples are approaching relationships very differently from baby boomers, who married young, divorced, remarried and so on. Generation X and especially millennials are being pickier about who they marry, tying the knot at older ages when education, careers and finances are on track. The result is a U.S. divorce rate that dropped 18 percent from 2008 to 2016, according to an analysis by University of Maryland sociology professor Philip Cohen.”
