Emily Lindin went through middle-school being labeled a ‘slut’. She was continually harassed at school, after school, and online. Fifteen years later, Emily is now sharing her middle-school diary with readers. Through “The UnSlut Project”, Emily is using her personal story to shine light onto the dangerous slut shaming happening around us in schools, in the media, and in culture. Now unedited entries from eleven year old Emily’s diary can be read on Wattpad, with special add-on commentary from her adult point of view. Storytelling brings us new perspectives, so read Emily’s story and remember that things will get better but bullying is not okay.
