Slam for Jada

 
By now you've heard about Jada. Last week, images of the 16-year-old's sexual assult went viral on social media accompanied with a mocking hashtag: #jadapose. There was an outcry across the internet, and today, "during an interview with MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow, Jada unveiled a new image and a new hashtag to drown out the materials related to her assault: #IAmJada, with her fist raised.
 
Now it's your turn to talk back on sexual assult and cyberbullying! What does the hashtag #IamJada mean to you? Why is it essential to have your voice heard? Can a hashtag really change anything? And what is the significance of a young woman, a survivor, standing up to her attackers?
