You Got Anything Stronger?

by Gabrielle Union

You Got Anything Stronger?

Gabrielle Union

Overview

Exposing your vulnerability to the people you love is hard, but exposing it to the rest of the world is even more challenging. When becoming vulnerable requires you to discuss unpleasant personal experiences or trauma, the impulse to bury your emotions can be stronger than your inclination to speak up. Revealing your truth can be the first step toward healing and wisdom.

Speaking from her experience in the entertainment industry and as an advocate for combating sexual assault and violence, Gabrielle Union reflects on her trauma and healing in order to comment on the challenges that women, victims of sexual assault, and people of color face daily.

Although Union has spoken about her rape and fertility struggles in the past, You Got Anything Stronger? takes a more intimate look at her battle to feel worthy and find strength amid the specter of sexual violence, infertility, and institutional racism.

Favorite Quote

"The body wants to live, even if we don't know how. Red blood cells rush to the cut, and some chemical signal tells them to produce collagen to create new tissue at the wound. New skin begins to form ... until the wound closes to leave a scar."
