Often sexual assault, stalking, identity-based harm, and abusive relationships are talked about in mainstream US culture as if they are all distinct things, unrelated to one another. Yet, we know that they are all rooted in power and control; and we live in a society where power and control exists interpersonally, as well as systemically in the form of discrimination and oppression.
