Women Aren’t Safe

Gabby Petito. Dead.

Women aren’t safe.

Women are harassed, assaulted, and murdered by men every day. Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito is the latest statistic with a face.

Petito and her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, went on a road trip together. After a “domestic dispute”, Petito vanished.

Laundrie was mentioned as “a person of interest” by the police in Petito’s disappearance. But once Laundrie disappeared himself, the grim conclusion was inevitable. Petito wasn’t safe. Not anymore.
