Help Brienne with Legal Fees & Industry Victims

On May 11th, Brienne casually asked her Instagram followers: "What sexist comments have you experienced?" Little did she know days later she would have gathered & re-shared potentially thousands of stories of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse across the craft beer industry. It comes as no surprise that most of those who shared their stories are women.

Even though Brienne is anonymously sharing other people's stories, she is now being threatened with legal action for speaking out against the industry, and this fund is being set up to help her in case that occurs. 

It's unfortunate that this is what it has taken for so many to finally have our voices heard and for people to finally believe us. I personally am so very thankful this happened, so that I can finally not feel alone in the harassment that I and countless others have experienced in the industry.

She has pinned the stories as highlights since the beginning if you would like to read through. Trigger warning: harassment, abuse, rape.
