‘Dear sex attacker, you will not win’



Ione Wells has spoken out about the attack in an open letter, published in the university’s newspaper, the Cherwell.

She wrote that she would not let the attack change her and would come out of it stronger.Ione also used the letter to argue that attacks are never the victim’s fault, with the hashtag #NotGuilty.

The 20-year-old was attacked as she walked home from Chalk Farm London Underground station early on Saturday 11 April.In the letter, Ione describes how she was pushed to the ground by a man who then grabbed her by her hair and dragged her along the ground and grabbed her breast.She says he ran off when her neighbours and family heard what was going on and came outside.

A 17-year-old pleaded guilty to sexual assault on Monday. He’ll appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on 6 May for a sentencing hearing. one wrote: “I cannot address this letter to you, because I do not know your name… And I have one question. She asked in her letter,”My community will not feel we are unsafe walking back home after dark. We will get on the last Tube home, and we will walk up our streets alone, because we will not ingrain or submit to the idea that we are putting ourselves in danger in doing so. Your community – even if you can’t see it around you every day. It is there. It is everywhere.”

She raised a question, “”You underestimated mine. Or should I say ours? I could say something along the lines of, ‘Imagine if it had been a member of your community,’ but instead let me say this. There are no boundaries to community; there are only exceptions, and you are one of them.”

The letter has since been shared thousands of times and appeared in national newspapers.
